Why is no one being held properly accountable for the shocking state of the UK finances?

Why do you think New Labour is out and the Conservalibs are in?

That would have happened anyway, if you look at British politics over last 200 yrs no party has stayed in office for more than about 3-4 parliaments. But this requires something more than just being osted from power, what they have done is scandelous and potentially is going to have affects way into the future!

Agreed.

Furthermore, if the Government collected the £123 billion of taxation avoided and evaded by the rich and multinationals every year there would be no deficit and no need to punish the poor for the mistakes that greedy bankers made.

Cameron's "painful" cuts in public services will only affect low and middle-income earners because the rich make private provisions for healthcare, education and pensions.

You'd think, under the circumstances, he'd ask the bankers if they wouldn't mind, you know, paying some f#cking tax, wouldn't you?

But let's not forget the City funds his election campaigns and his father was a stockbroker so I don't think this will happen.

For the same reason that Blair was not executed.

The country has no balls.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

Compare and contrast the UK debt with other nations, and you don't have it bad off.
