They say confession is good for the soul, well I’m a sure Alistair Darling soul feel less burden. When he insisted it was his duty to be straight with the public yesterday, after delivering a dire assessment of the UK’s economic prospects. He said; "It is important Government ministers and particularly me, as Chancellor, level with people.
It’s a pity that his boss Gordon Brown was a bit more honest when he was Chancellor. He was too busy buying Labour party members to become the successor to Tony Blair to worry about the economic future of the UK.
I’m sure Labour will lose parliamentary seats in the next General Election, the question is how many. There is a strong possibility Labour will look to the Liberals to form a coalition to keep them in power. I'm sure those sandal wearing nice people, would be over joyed at the prospect.
The real stitch up!
