Perhaps tax advisors are better than their investment counterparts.
Yeah, I have to agree. Will sift through the impartial BE advice instead. Thanks for the reality check

Sinking further

Sterling looks vulnerable as it loses ground to fragile peers

I guess the only real question is.... Will the foundering ship of Nu-Labour run out of credit and be forced to devalue before the next election ?

Or will the GB taxpayers have to wait until the 'pollies' have guranteed themselves another five years at the trough before hearing the bad news ?

I have to declare an interest in them devaluing before I arrive for my holliday

I think it'll happen soon afterwards. I find it very tragic watching the British public being hoodwinked again by Nu-Labour.

The Tories would stand a better chance if they had someone more electable at the top. Cameron is nearly as unelectable as Labour's Kinnock was.

You wait till Gordon is voted back in as he is the only person out there who gets on with the job instead of waisting time as camerone does it blowing his own trumpet.

I have no political allegiance but seriously, Gordon sold 50% of the UK's Gold at the lows (about £300/oz, its now well over £700), also presided over the cheap money policies which created the housing bubble and lead to our leading role in the GFC, then for afters gave a load of the taxpayers money to bail out the banks, so they can now give themselves huge bonuses while the country faces years of hardship.

Then you could look at the New Labour years & say we had an unprecidented boom with nothing left except a load of dead soldiers and a big bill for wars we had no place getting involved in in the first place.

I do agree that Cameron hasn't come up with much in the way of alternative suggestions so far and the most astute economist of all the parties in my view is Vince Cable of the LD's (I've never voted Lib in my life BTW).

The UK economy is in trouble, and there's no-one else to blame.

Seriously though, I actually thought you where joking when you posted the above comment...

The depressing thing is that none of the options look good for this election.
I think the tories will get in but not by a huge landslide.

I find it hard to believe that the UK is in more of a mess than probably any other country in world and the UK public may just reward Labour by voting them back in again. It just shows how rubbish the opposition is when they can't even get a clear win against these clowns.

And to think that Gordon said "an end to boom and bust economics" while he may well have screwed up the finances of this country beyond anyones' wildest dreams.
