Oh the Tories would just love that. They would be able to do anything and still get relected.
The truth is that the economies of rich countries, including the UK, are being kept alive by another and astonishingly under-reported bull market — in government debt. This is the bond bubble; and when it bursts, as it surely will, the result will be a recession far deeper than the crash from which we are trying to recover.

I don't really care any more. I have half a mind to think ****** it and let them go for it, I'm far more prepared for whatever bag of shit they can drop us in than I am for trying to catch up with the people 10-15 years older than me.

There is no ladder.

No need to sell up, the next phase of the economics cycle is going to be very positive for anyone that owns property.

All I'm sayings is, don't listen to the property bears people, they are wrong.

He'll be aiming to time his leadership for when he reckons Labour will have a chance. He didn't want it last time, just to mark out his place as a contender.

In a perverse way I almost like Milibrown. He's kind-of a blank sheet.

No ..its more basic than that

In what will be cold comfort for Osborne, his Labour party counterpart Ed Balls is also facing months of uncertainty over his own seat, which is facing substantial alterations to accommodate the reduction in MPs. The Shadow Chancellor can expect to have to fight his Labour colleague Hillary Benn for the proposed new seat of Leeds South West and Morley.

http://www.huffingto...o_n_958653.html

He won the Morley and Outwood constituency in West Yorkshire with 18,365 votes, with Tory challenger Antony Calvert polling 17,264. Mr Balls was defending a majority of more than 8,000.

reduced to a 1100.... Benn however has a majority of 10645......could be fun !

Its all about political survival .....Mcbride will be back in business methinks

I am sure he will go for the leadership 1 year before the next GE. And he will win and become the UK's next PM.

I have nightmares about this. It reminds me of the time before the rise of Berlusconi when I were a lad down in North Italy.

Balls is a chameleon and will say what ever reassuring words are necessary. He'll be far worse than Brown and that takes some doing.

I do wish that we had a chance to vote for someone who wasn't actually evil, or Nick Clegg. It's like 'Vote for Shub-Niggurath and be devoured by her thousand black offspring', or 'Vote for Yog-Sothoth and be ritually sacrificed at midnight' , or 'Vote for Nick Clegg'. Technically democratic, yes, but you'd really wand a non-evil alternative, just for balance's sake.

Within a few years? A few months more like.

When he does topple Milliband, it will be a big indicator that the Coalition has passed their usefulness, and another election is looming.

The worm is turning, and tptb are turning their backs on austerity.

I thought sitting tight in the basement with a years supply of beans was the way to go, now I reckon only fleeing is the best policy for survival.

Unfortunately, due to austerity, the Mars colonisation project has been postponed.. so where do you plan to flee to?

Looks like I'll have to revise down my expectations and settle for the moon then.
