Many political 'hot potatos' are the subject of debate, in today's world, amongst which are energy, defense, NHS, education and funding of political parties.
Christopher Booker has an excellent article in today's Mail on the energy crisis facing us, the Times on how Ainsworth came to be appointed Defense Secretary, Lansley accuses the government of 'rhetoric' on their health care plans.
All three stories, each in their own way, highlight what is wrong with our political elite and that is the fact that while 'the lights may be on' (at the moment) it is obvious 'no-one is in'.
At the end of the day, all the problems come down to the fact that the country is broke - due to firstly, the idiotic financial path followed by the last Chancellor who, as Prime Minister, continues the folly and secondly, to our membership of the European Union and the associated annual costs as a result. As John Redwood posts, the political elite seem to have their priorities in the wrong order.
There is only one party, today, that has the good of this country at its core and that is the UK Independence Party; coupled with two Conservative politicians who truly believe in democracy, namely Douglas Carswell and Daniel Hannan co-authors of The Plan.
When will our political elite open their eyes and view the devastation they have created? The electorate are, it is believed, opening their eyes and don't like what they are seeing.
