All those that saw the program by Jon Snow on Syria will realise that
the politicians know as little as the rest of us peasants as to why
there is fighting there, and why interference by the West in any form
whatsoever will only exasperate the problem. Oh well, what's new?

Nothing like Blair in fact.

Even the yanks aren't proposing to do
anything like what the shrub did either.

Unlikely, we never did see anyone else decide to

I watched that program on Syria, and I agree with what you say.

The actions of the west in both Afghanistan and Iraq have not changed a
lot of what happens in those countries, and it never will.

You have only to look at Northern Ireland as an example.

Yes, he and Brown switched houses. But there is supposed to be
a connecting door inside the building, so he could still emerge from
No. 10 for the photoshoots. It all probably helped Brown's belief that
he was destined for the PM job, only to be proved disastrously wrong
when he got it. The only thing I thank Blair for is that he kept Brown
out of that post for as long as he did.

Blair kept Brown out until he could clearly see that we were ruined
totally, at which point he handed the whole disaster to Brown and let
him carry the can.

Brown then handed it to the Tories..you wanna know WHY the limp dims
were rejected when they looked at at a labour coalition? No way did
Labour want to be where the coalition is now. Only Cameron was stupid
enough to want to be in power cleaning up after the biggest mess a
Labour government had ever made.

He's stupid, mad, or dedicated. Or perhaps all.

Either he didn't see the mess coming.
Or he saw it coming, and thought he'd be able to fix it.
Or he saw it coming, and thought the best thing for the country would be
to take the **** rather than have more of the previous government.

Personally I'd go for mad. Specifically megalomania - which is common to
all politicians, as every single one of them has a delusional belief in
their own omnipotence. Add a touch of dedicated too.

I proposed an new (well, maybe not) idea over supper the other day...

A "randomocracy". Bit like Jury service. Pull a few hundred people for 4
years and give them a ministerial job or assistant to minister job.
Including the PM.

Totally impractical I know (Jury service buggers up work, how would this
work?) but could it be better - or less worse?

No career politicians.

No buggering about voting.

Lobbying would be dealt a huge blow.


Would rely on the civil service to provide the technical analysis of each
realm of issue and advice on the expected impact of any given solution - but
that's their job, and I don't think they are bad at it...

There's no magic wand/bullet.
Bliar/Brown fecked up our economy. They left no stone unturned.
It will take a decade to fix it. The worst is yet to come.

Nationalise the banks. Then, for example, public borrowing to support
mass construction with training in trades/professions. Degrowth.

The reasons are of interest but largely immaterial to the solution.

That's a good idea. We own the Royal Bank of Scotland. I don't know how much
the Taxpayer coughed up prior to ownership, but losses thus far are 5.5bn.

I'm not qualified to diagnose if Cameron is bonkers or whether he'll be

Indeed, and you have to be the prime example...

Ineptocracy

(in-ep-toc-ra-cy) a system of government where the least capable to
lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the
members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are
rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a
diminishing number of producers.

I'm personally a tad worried about where higher education is going:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-11832373

In essence, it's looking attractive, both financially and from a point of
travel/interest/being different to do a degree in the US.

With the cost of a BA/BSc running at 9k per year in England just for the
fees alone, I think a lot of future undergrads are going to:

1) Become rather picky - at they should at those rates;

2) Seriously consider another country, with the US being an obvious candiate
as it's English speaking.

Not just talking about trying to hit MIT, Berkley or Stanford - if you are
destined for a middle of the road but decent enough uni here, or you could
pick a lesser known, but decent one in somewhere sunny and cool in the US,
then why not...

WTF are you talking about?

Of course it's not free, and it not free here either. That's the entire
point. It's now getting so expensive here that people are seriously looking
at whether to give their hard earned debt to a British University or a
foreign one.

Typically a little more expensive than 9k/yr, I think, not including any
accomodation fees.

cheers

By the time they graduate, $9k will be pocket money anyway.

He's stupid, mad, or dedicated. Or perhaps all.


Either he didn't see the mess coming.
Or he saw it coming, and thought he'd be able to fix it.
Or he saw it coming, and thought the best thing for the country would be
to take the **** rather than have more of the previous government.


Personally I'd go for mad. Specifically megalomania - which is common to
all politicians, as every single one of them has a delusional belief in
their own omnipotence. Add a touch of dedicated too.


I don't think politicians are in the least stupid. If you doubt that,
check up, as far as that is possible for ordinary people, on the
difference between their income and net worth *before* entering
Parliament and the same figures afterwards.

Not at all impressed by He Who Shouts, though.

The only thing scumbag socialists are good at is spending other

And this lot don't? They're rather better at not spending their own and

It was Brown and Bliar buggered up the economy. society and a lot of
people's lives.


And now He Who Shouts is carrying on the tradition.
