Post Election 2010

Recommended Posts

So what is it about the election that makes everyone on here believe that things will be different when it is finally over and the results are in?

Look at the US, Obama could have blame the recession on the previous administration and taken drastic and painful measures to nip it in the bud and reduce the deficit.

Instead he seems to have made it worse, borrowing more than Bush did in his short period in office.

It takes guts, foresight and discipline to do this, and I believe that whoever wins will find it easy to simply continue along the same path until the choice is taken from them.

Their policies are identical so there's going to be no change until they're forced into it. Cameron may make the odd comment here or there about pensions but he'll take no meaningful action on the issue. The Tories need to be pressed for their ideas, if they have any.

Shaking up the NHS (and I don't mean privatising it) and shedding all those managers could wrestle one of the fall-back positions that Labour always uses against them.

Tightening up immigration control would now be more popular too.

Perhaps even ditching the Human Rights Convention due to it's abuses, and a different set of 'rights.' That little lot would do me.

The traditional Labour voter is now utterly disillusioned.

Developments after the GE will do the same for the traditional Tory voter.

The UK population is being financially smashed and led to globalised serfdom, to be controlled ever more overtly and tightly by global money power.

Fundamental change of the money system or permanent debt slavery for your descendants?

Does the choice bother you?

IMO they won't make much in the way of policy clear until the GE campaign actually starts. Otherwise anything that looks like being popular will instantly be nicked and dressed in NuLab clothing, all perfectly stitched by Mandelson.

In essence I suspect that you are right on a number of counts, however most people on here are interested in house prices and this is were we are seeing a pre election fiddle. With the banks in government ownership it has been possible to prevent the level of repossession that would be occurring naturally. This has limited forced sellers and as we all know force sellers are the ones that cause the rapid decline in prices as they try and get out before things deteriorate.

The current blip in the crash is purely election manipulation and the hope for HPC is when the next party are in power they will actually facilitate further falls earlier on in the tenure to help the necessary adjustment while giving the new party a chance to cry recovery once there are signs of natural bottoming.
