But not blaming any of it on Labour is just as bad. You seemed to be absolving them of any responsibility.
Brown, Balls and Millband were a disaster. Balls is a very scary individual. He is a spend spend spend kind of guy who thinks it was funny to leave a note in the treasury files saying "the UK is broke" ready for the next government on his last day.
Borrowing was at record highs BEFORE the collapse and subsequent borrowing. The public sector had grown to ridculous levels and yet spending on health had barely changed and education hadnt increased at all. Lets not get onto the actual privatisation of parts of the NHS under Labour that is the epicly stupid PFI.
Sorry, that was directed at/in reference to the post I was quoting before not you. No one likes Balls.
True, being in a war we couldn't afford didn't help. I disagree with any essential national services and I think NHS is one of them. Yet, Tories are the ones who want to privatise everything which is why any privatisation by Labour is odd, end of the last Tory government we lost our rail system, now we've lost out mail system. ...
... I think I should move. Korea looks nice.
