Sounds ok. Good to have someone from the "real" world on board. Not sure of the background of the LSE gentlemen. Does anyone know of any political feelings of either of these?

Well if they lean the wrong way I'm sure they can just have a heart attack.

New members of MPC. Am I lone voice in the wilderness crying that Gordon Brown is in the "all together" He has no money! He has the largest ever BOT(balance of trade) defecit a PSBR of unmentionable size. The highest unemployment record in REAL NUMBERS especially in manufacturnig numbers, and is furiously playing his violin as the british economy melts and burns!
Whilst telling us we have the fourth best economy in the world GOD help those worst off than us. There are no rescue boats available on the impending crisis, and every man woman and child will suffer.
Doom and gloom icebergs are ahead....But I know of no course to steer to save us, so eat drink and be merry with Gordon until the reckoning comes!
Its being so cheerful that keeps me going!!!!

Bubbles you are not alone. Gordon's economic miracle is a total sham. A pension crisis and a huge increase in the public sector are just two of his legacies. Currently we are borrowing against our houses to keep this ship afloat. Worldwide interst rates are rising. Not looking good

I am on an extended holiday here in China. What I found is that the affordability here is infinitely higher than in the UK. I've also noticed that people are much happier and more optimisitic here. I am very happy here because I can afford things so easily. There is no need to think too much. I wish I could live here forever. Back in England, after bills, council tax, rent, we have very little to spend in order to enjoy ourselves. I wonder why Gorden Brown thinks Britain is rich. Perhaps a limited number of people are rich the majority of us are on the poverty line. No wonder lots of young people are emigrating.
