I am not sure that I agree with all of this blog but I certainly endorse the folly of austerity when every respectable economist, plus the IMF & the World Bank are falling over themselves with Keynesian remedies to stimulate growth & investment
The weight of history ways heavy on British Prime Minister Mr David Cameron shoulders. And so it should, as 2012 the Olympic year which initially promised so much joy, could prove to be the most turbulent one since 1973 for the United Kingdom (UK) and potentially the whole global economy.
In the year the movie, “The Iron Lady”, brings back into focus some of the lesser social and economic achievements of his eminent
predecessor, Margaret Thatcher, (i.e. policies allowing erosion of the manufacturing base, monetarist experimentation that sacrificed communities for individual rather than collective gain, and the elevation of profit over principle as core UK companies were sold without consultation and key others¹) it is ironic that David Cameron, supported by his “cabinet of coalition millionaires” now finds himself in the invidious position of having to unravel, and solve…

The third objective of “detoxifying ” the Conservative brand by continuing to grant overseas aid is part of a very long term attempt to appease right wing elements within the Liberal Democrat party and in effect create a new party the ConDems which will take over the centre ground and make all other parties unelectable.

This is to take on a big role within the UN and for Nick Clegg complete with linguistic skills and attractive Spanish wife to take a big role in Europe. Once this happens after the 2015 General Election, the stage scenery will be moved again, and irrespective of who wins it, Boris Johnson will probably become Prime Minister, a role he has coveted since attending Oxford University.
Alex Salmond, Scotland’s own “cheeky chappie” will probably have got his way by then and achieved Scottish independence but not at the entire cost of all the North Sea oil.
John, many thanks for an interesting and unusual view. It will be interesting to see how things develop!
