Opinions large and small, worth everything you pay for them.
Latest from the BBC (Big Brother Collectivists) has no one with a majority, but Cammeron's collectivist lite as the largest party.It is difficult to see how this is going to resolve itself in a good way. I don't think any of them want to tackle the overgrown state sector, and they'll be as unpopular as hell for taxing fuck out of everyone to preserve it.A coalition of the 3 major parties could share the blame for reform, but the state sector is such a juicy source of captive votes, I don't see any appetite for destroying it, from any of them.The last hung parliament resulted in a second general election in a year, in simillar economic conditions (Labour and the Unions had bankrupted the country then as well), we had to wait another 5 years for Thatcher to put in a few reforms, but even she grew the share that the state sector took out of the economy.The ideal would have been the Tories with a majority of 5, then they'd have to do what the country wanted, not what they want for themselves, and a big majority allows.Hung parliament; I'd have settled for tarred and feathered. but perhaps we'll get drawn and quartered too?
