for ages I've said the Cameroonsare wet and this proves it. Brown is getting away with it and nobody is pinning the whole mess on him

But at the end of all arguments - government let control of our currency slip away from it and only government can be blamed. If you want to know which government look at the house-price graph!!!

A government's prime responsibilities are : 1. Defence of the realm; 2. defence of the currency; and 3. Law and Order.. Credit should have been controlled and wasn't. Minimum repayments on credit cards should have been controlled and weren't. Minimum house deposits should have been controlled and weren't. Bank rate was far too low. Result nobody saved!

It's no use them shuffling off responsibility either to the banks or to the consumer. Both were stupid and greedy but there was an open invitation to take advantage of no worthwhile credit control.


First time I've agreed with you Christine so I'm writing in. The trouble has always been that Tory leaders, not just the Cameroons, seem incapeable, or unwilling, to get their hands dirty taking on Labour, (or Lib/Dems at by elections!).

However, up till recently the economic problems had been pinned on Brown so as things rumble on in the next few days maybe things will change.

Cameron and Osborne have mishandled the financial crisis, proving, if further proof was necessary, that young Mr. Osborne is simply not suitable as Chancellor.

Cameron really, really, really needs to replace him -- I think Hague should do it, but Ken Clarke would be OK with me too, despite his europhilia he would be a reassuring figure.

And Cameron really needs to focus and get a grip. If he doesn't get his act together on this he could actually lose the premiership...!

Would you invest all your money in a financial institution run by a thirty-something whose experience was limited to research and writing speeches for his previous bosses?

If not, why do think that George Osborne is qualified to be in charge of Britain's economy? It's time for a change!

"Would you invest all your money in a financial institution run by a thirty-something whose experience was limited to research and writing speeches for his previous bosses?"

At least some clerical backroom staff in the city has passed his FSA exams; Osborne gets to play with the UK economy with a modern history degree. Something very wrong about this.
