British Election 2010 May 06

Vince Cable, Chris Huhne, Dr Evan Harris, and Nick Clegg are the four best politicians in the UK, and they are all Lib Dems. The Lib Dems were revealed to be the most well-behaved and responsible party in the Expenses scandal, e.g., not a single London Lib Dem MP claimed 2nd home allowance. They still have what the other two parties lack: clear policies, well-behaved and intelligent politicians.

I agree on the manufacturing. I'm an engineer. I shit a brick at the thought of no-one building anymore. Bloody stupid that.

With us closer to parity with Europe on our currency it means our products are cheaper abroad now. Perfect time.

And, sadly, New Labour are saying manufacturing needs to come back. Did so on the politics show. Gordon is focussing on North Britain to transfer over the old manufacturing to new stuff. But yes that is happening.

You'd think they'd be making more noise about that.

To New Labour, I say this: "What the hell have you been doing for the last thirteen years?"

Oh, yeah, selling off massive amounts of UK industry, awarding fat contracts to companies overseas, pushing students into unaffordable degrees (except if you live in Scotland, funny that) at the expense of sciences and techology departments...

Bunch of rich idiots lining their pockets. The papertrail says it all. All you have to do is survive for 8 odd years and you are so rich you're set for life.

And Blair said lying was fine to make it easier to do this. It's clearly treason.
