Conservative musings and comments.

What’s going on?

Well, we’ve now been told that, by all respectable predictions, our country will be going into a recession by next year. Now, for once, i’m not in the mood for criticizing Gordon Brown and the Labour government, to be honest, there doesn’t seem to be anyone not to criticise, we’re all pointing the finger at each other and no one seems to have any ideas about how we’re going to get out of this mess.

It hurts me to say it but my own Party is just as useless at the rest, instead of providing ideas for how we can sort ourselves out, it’s just the same old government-bashing that the public must surely be tired of. I dislike a Labour government just as much as any Conservative, but now is not the time. Who really cares about Mandelson and Osborne and their love of Russian Aluminium magnates? Not me. I care more about my country, and the economic threat that we are encountering at the moment.

Personally, I think that the appointment of Mandelson is a masterstroke, the man is something of a political genius. He knows who to back, what to do, how to do it, and what’s more, he doesn’t care about who he upsets, as Gordon Brown well knows. I honestly congratulate the PM on this appointment, and if I was to make any criticism of the recent re-shuffle it would be that Darling was not shifted, as he is clearly not the man for the job.

Finally, we all complain about the EU from time to time, but now is surely the time this supranational organisation can come good? Free movement of persons, trade and goods… surely what is needed in times of an economic downturn? Let’s just get Thatcherite and sort this mess out, come on Britain!
