Don’t read the posts if you don’t want to. It’s not very difficult.

I mean it’s a fairly simple question. If there was an election in the near future who would you vote for? You know like polls ask all the time.

Funny, I voted Labour because there was no viable alternative.

At least I was proved right.

The alternative is to change leadership , does not have to be a different party in government, just better governing

The current government is corrupt and incompetent. I can't see how any traditional Tory voter can be happy with the way they are performing. Question is whether there is anyone left that hasn't soiled themselves.

I have just got around to reading Moody's press release to explain their downgrading of UK Plc late on Friday. It makes for interesting reading and they certainly do not pull any punches when it comes to their view of the current government's credentials. Slightly surprised that it hasn't received more coverage.

I particularly liked.....

“The third driver relates to the weakening in the UK's institutions and governance that Moody's has observed in recent years, which underlies the previous two drivers. While still high, the quality of the UK's legislative and executive institutions has diminished in recent years. Policymaking, particularly with respect to fiscal policy, has become less predictable and effective. Looking forward, the self-reinforcing combination of low potential growth and high debt in a fractious policy environment will create additional headwinds to addressing the economic, fiscal and social challenges that the UK faces.”

Looking forward, the self-reinforcing combination of low potential growth and high debt in a fractious policy environment will create additional headwinds to addressing the economic, fiscal and social challenges that the UK faces.”
"This reduced institutional capacity to manage change in a predictable and confidence-building manner is evident with respect to the UK's approach to Brexit, in its inability to achieve an outcome which meaningfully replicates the benefits of EU membership and in its approach to implementing the agreement reached with the EU to date. However, the erosion in the predictability of policymaking and respect for rules and norms is perhaps most clearly reflected in the conduct of fiscal policy. Some fiscal institutions, such as the Office for Budget Responsibility, remain very strong relative to global peers. However, the UK's broad fiscal framework, characterized by features such as multi-year budget plans and more detailed revenue and spending decisions announced for the outer years of the planning period, has weakened. This deterioration in the quality of institutions has made policy planning more unpredictable.

The UK effectively has no fiscal policy anchor. Before the pandemic, Moody's saw an increasing willingness to move the goalposts, with changes to the longer-term fiscal anchor and the definition of fiscal targets and a revealed preference to shift the fiscal tightening to outer years of a five-year horizon. While the economic and public health uncertainties are undeniable at the current juncture, there is no indication that this trend—which has transcended electoral cycles—is likely to reverse."

Was I supposed to be making a list? Must have missed that.

Bit soon to tell if the opposition is good enough or not.
