I see Nicola Sturgeon is promising that she will be looking to help the rest of the UK. What a load of BS. If that’s what she wanted why on earth is in the SNP?
Listening to the wash ups and reading about the various TV debates there have to be real concerns about the potential political landscape after 7th May and the ensuing 5 years, if we don’t get a Conservative led govt.
It would appear there is a clutch of left leaning parties namely the SNP, Plaid Cymru and The Greens who say they will do anything to keep The Conservatives out of Downing Street. This of ourse is depends on what happens with the Limp Dems
While I think it’s pretty obvious that we will once again have a coalition govt, if it is a Labour led govt propped up by a gaggle of effectively self-serving leftist single interest parties, I dread to think what the country will look like in 5 years time, as any policies will have to get approved by what in effect will be a committee formed of any parties propping Labour up all wanting something for themselves. We’ve had that to some extent for the last 5.
If we get a Conservative led govt I want to see the West Lothian question put to bed once and for all and any Scottish MPs of any colour in Westminster banned from voting on anything that doesn’t apply to Scotland.
I just hope that people who do vote, don’t vote tactically as we ended up with Blair after everyone did that in ’97.
The minority parties rattle on about anti austerity and seem to think they can buy the UK’s way out by taxing the so called rich in as many way as possible and as a result spend the UK out of financial problems. You have to wonder about how these people run their own households? If you haven’t got the money to spend you can’t spend it and if you want money to spend you have to borrow it from whoever will give it to you. The latter is not a good option unless you know you can pay it back. It’s not been an easy 5 years but I do feel we are in a better place, than had we had another 5 years of socialist govt…
It is annoying but true to form that the BBC only ever seems to support the notion of a socialist led govt. Whenever they get to play with their latest set of toys, there hasn’t, as I’ve seen, anything about a conservative led govt.
