Messing Up, The Coalition

Recommended Posts

I mean the sort of shoot yourself in the foot sort of mess up.

Two good ones so far:

1. Frank Field to be Benefits Tzar. "No I'm not." said Frank

2. Liam Fox nearly gets us into war with Afghanistan, not just in Afghanistan.

I know they are inexperienced, but already showing a tendency to c*** it up.

Heaven help us, another year to go!

Please post updates, as they happen.

Guest happy?

They just keep coming... the 1922 Committee debacle..

Libcons, you couldn't make it up.

****-ups go with government. The question is when the honeymoon's over what then? Will we see disgruntled Tories attacking Dave for selling-out or will it be disgusted Lib-Dems shouting about social spending cuts to Nick.

Could be that Dave has managed to corale the loony fringe of his party - something his predecessors failed to do.

'Tis a tricky tightrope act but what a spectacle.

No, let's give them a chance and meanwhile mull over the "bare cupboard" handed on by Labour.

Jesus, the sour grapes continue unabated.

The Coalition has promised to do everything better.

I do not like what they are doing, many of their MPs and members do not like what they are doing.

And if they keep making gaffes like those above, they are not fit to govern.

Out of interest, who did you vote for?

Just for the record, please can you declare who you voted for. It will give context to your criticisms.

Then please explain exactly why gaffes make a person unfit to govern, and give examples of a government in the past that never made a gaffe.

The way some of them carry on you'd think they're posting out of labour party HQ

Frankly I think they'd need to try real hard to do anything worse.

As you may have guessed, I am a Labour Party member and supporter.

I do not believe that the Libcons deserve to be in power and fear that they are already leading us into worse trouble than we had.

Let us not forget that the financial problems we have came from the failures of the finacial system which the Conservatives supported without demur. The Liberals, greedy for influence, have subsumed what values they had into the Right Wing project.

its the usual pro labour posters. I don't get it how anyone can be pro labour, it makes no sence to me. Ive just started reading Hayeks book, which describes a historic nanny state which originated from socialism http://en.wikipedia....Road_to_Serfdom. But on the other side the posters above have opposing view.

My view is socialism is a race to the bottom, it gives the population bigger and better opportunity to do sod all and drives productive country's into the ground.

As suspected, merely a nasty case of sour grapes. Maybe you should show a little humility at this point and consider why the electorate judged you unfit for government.

The rest of the country seems to disagree. And by extension you must believe that the scum who've f***ed the country up over the last 13 years do deserve to be in power - very odd.

Is it possible to be in worse trouble when 25% of government spending is borrowed?

Let us not forget that the financial problems we have came from the failures of the finacial system which the Conservatives supported without demur.

A classic labour lie. We're screwed because Brown budgeted to borrow £80 billion a year at the peak of a huge bubble.

The credit crunch has certainly exacerbated the problem, but let's not forget that in our case a large part of this was due to the utter failure of Brown's tripartite regulatory system.

I am sorry to say this but try keeping an open mind on this lot, we can all bang on about the last 13 years but all I will say is that the country is now a lot worse off than it was in 1997.It is far far too late to blame the Tories for1997

No one voted for a coalition, including me but I like what they are doing and the direction they are heading in and it is a breath of fresh air after what preceeded it

People will see cuts but less face the facts that the debt/deficit is massive and some sense needs to prevail

Lets just all remember that it's all about a binary fight to the death between 2 sides here

The only possible reason for not being overjoyed at the current regime and every single decision it takes is that you're Left wing scum who fully endorse each and every single thing Labour have done for the last 13 years

I think the outcome of the election was the least worse result that could have been reasonably expected, I voted to unseat NuLab but I'm not about to give the Coalition a free pass on everything they do; they deserve an equal amount of scrutiny if not more, we live in pretty parlous times and they're making some incredibly important decisions; I expect to be able to make a negative comment about them without being called a communist tbh.

I hope they don't ****** it up and I'm totally willing to give them a chance but I'm not about to suspend my cynicism when it's needed more than ever.

'Free thinking and tolerant'!?? I presume as you support the Party who destroyed our economy , lost control of our borders, started a murderous and illegal war, set out to dumb down our society and introduced the most totalitarian measures ever in this country under a peace (in our backyard) time government you are in fact being ironic. If so, very amusing.

If not try giving some thought to what your bunch of economically illiterate hypocrites have done to the UK and feel guilty, very guilty. For however long this Coalition lasts it will stand as a testament to how many people see your Party for what it is..................

Well, you are, frankly.

I've voted for three different parties in my relatively short voting life. You seem to bear all the hallmarks of a stormtrooper who would vote for your party no matter what.

My Party, right or wrong, makes you a dalek.

Did I miss the massive Tory revolt over the war?

Both parties were complicit in that insane decision, Ian Duncan Smith went even further with the ******** WMD talk (according to him Iraq were on the cusp of devloping ballistic missiles with "the capacity to strike most of Europe, including London")

If enough Tories had voted against the war they could have forced Blairs resignation as there was a pretty substantial backbench rebellion from Labour MPs (and a tiny one from the Tories)

Cameron has put forward a case that WMD's wasn't the only reason he thought war was justified (much like Blair in fact); the Lib Dems and rebels are the only people who can take the moral high ground on Iraq imo.

It's just too rich for words to have a Labour supporter laying into the new government after only two weeks. Similar to the lack of humility being displayed by the Catholic church over that abortion advert...does nobody have any shame these days?
