"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Prime Minister Cameron

Just for the record:


  1. It will all end in tears and much, much sooner than you think.

    Greece is a gonner, and cannot be saved. The the real pressure will come on the UK, Italy (yes), Spain and Portugal nut, more importantly on the banks who have underwritten their bonds.

    Stand by for Financial Meltdown II---The Big One, coming our way.

    In 5 or 10 years, those of us still alive will look back and think that it mattered not one not who won on Thursday the 6th of May 2010.

  2. Bugger, you are wrong, buddy. If labour had retained their postal grip, yes. To wake up after 13 miserable and humourless years of Labour, with a Tory PM. Priceless!

  3. OR

    Read the rest of my piece.

    The whole of the Western World in coming unglued, financially.

    Enjoy your day in the sun, something you have been waiting a long time to arrive.

  4. OR, I think Bugger's right - we should make the most of this moment, albeit with the LibDems in tow.

    As for how long it lasts - long or short is a lose/lose situation for us. If it's short then it's more turmoil and financial markets will attack; if it's long then it gives them time to settle their policies into the fabric of our society - and despite the Conservatives' assurances, they're a new breed of Conservative. Everything's moving centre-left unless the new intake of MPs can halt the slide. Realistically, I think that's unlikely though we should wait and see what happens with quangos and Common Purpose affiliates. Still, it's excellent news that the Labour Party are now in opposition.
