Rodney and I both have a passion for politics and current affairs. Despite our different political views we find that our opinions are converging. I would like to dwell on this thread but before I do please open this link if you are interested in my political views.
For me, it’s a sad reflection on the major political parties in the UK and the Government in power when people of divergent political views reach consensus about economic mismanagement in the UK. It highlights how mainstream politics has become discredited.
Despite being a conservative at heart, I believe passionately in massive Keynesian investment stimulus to kick-start the economy. For me, UK Chancellor, George Osborne has been fundamentally wrong to stick to his plan A; austerity has been totally discredited – surely George gets a briefing paper or two?
