Just been watching George Osborne and Alistair Darling, darling, on lunchtime news.
What a pair of wafflers! Both of them trying to tell me, and every body else who will listen, how they can save billions of pounds if their party is elected. How can Wally 1, George, know how much he can save when he has yet to see the size of the deficit on Wally 2's, Alistair Darling's, darling, Balance Sheet? There again, if Alistair (forget the darlings reference) can save billions of pounds why has he waited to just before the new parliament to do it? Obviously Alistair or George will forget all about this problem once their party is comfortably ensconced in the House of Commons for another five years.
Whoever is elected will put on their tricorn hat and wave their pistols at the electorate crying, "Stand and deliver!" and we the poor defenceless public will surrender our hard earned cash.
Rant over and I will not listen to any news or political programme until the Seventh of May, when I will listen to the weak excuses of the losers and the smugness of the victors. Don't ask, I don't know why I bother.
Wonder if there are any job vacancies for a hermit on a desert island?
