Max Hastings prescribes the medicine we desperately need…

In the second decade of the 21st century, what will British people want from their government?

Our economy is sick, our society fractured. If he wins, Mr Cameron may face a tougher task than Mrs Thatcher. People are frightened by the cost of filling the car, the spectacle of their houses falling in value, pensions being squeezed, utility bills rising, holidays suddenly looking unaffordable.Now, storm clouds are breaking. If this government tries to raise an umbrella, we reckon that it will either cost us a fortune or collapse in Chancellor Alistair Darling's hands.

  • God forbid that we should ever become so desperate that it would appear Max Hastings has something to say worth listening to.

  • What has this mindless rant got to do with House Price Inflation? Wait till the unions start striking over pay increases to compensate for all these price increases, that will bring the Thatcherite living dead back in their unsightly hordes.This time they’ll be really desperate because they won’t have the comfort of knowing their houses will always go up in value.

  • I can hear all this in the pub. Hastings was probably in the pub when he wrote it. If I’m into stream of consciousness writing I think I prefer Joyce’s Ulysses.

  • Hastings said, “For a decade we have been spoilt. We are used to feeling at least a little better off each year. Now, storm clouds are breaking”. They were also saying this at the beer festival, yesterday – closet Mail readers and real ale fans!.
