This morning's political mail....
Some comedy from the Conservative (coalition ruling) party...
The truth is that the UK economy has been borderline recession for some years. Public finances are a disaster, with monstrous fiscal deficits since 2008. Many in the UK will recognise that the Conservatives touting higher spending promises on healthcare and policing is grossly hypocritical... not that Labour or the Liberal Democrats have any better ideas.
*The election is due Dec'12th, with results Friday the 13th :)
