Change Coming To Great Britain?

David Cameron will use the Conservative Party’s first majority in the House of Commons for nearly 20 years to “deliver” on a radical agenda to cut welfare, shrink the size of the state and re-define Britain’s relationship with Europe.

Conservative insiders said Mr Cameron would move to the right to consolidate support among his backbench MPs after five years of compromise with the Liberal Democrats.

Story here.

Yeah. I'll wait and see. Two out of three would be good. I have great doubts. All "conservative" parties are about a third to half filled with traitors. While he does have majority, he also has a very slimmed majority, from 76 to 12... plus any mps from the other "conservative" parties he might add to the coalition.

We'll see. In less than a year, six months really, we'll know. We already saw what electing Republicans to a majority in the house and senate was worth.

They must have run out of "other people's money" to spend...

Like Doom, I too am skeptical. Recall France electing Sarkoczi, and we all figured that this conservative leader was going to whip the French into fiscal shape lickity split.

Nope. The entrenched mooches and their bureaucracies were so dug in so deep into the French fabric, in short order, ol' Nicolei was set back on his heels.

Same thing with Greece and some elections supporting grown ups to fix things. Then when 'austerity' flowed from their lips, the mooches dug in and refused to be dislodged from their hammocks.

Ditto with Arnold (I'll be baaaaack) Schwarzenegger when he rode into Sacramento on his fiscally conservative horse. He was absolutely impotent trying to implement his efforts in rolling back the mooching liberalism infesting California.

Double ditto with the newly elected Bruce Rauner as governor of liberal, broke Illinois. He is now being portrayed as Vlad the Impaler with his draconian cuts of the Illinois fat. All he is trying to do is to get the Sumo wreslter to eat some salad here and there, and maybe set aside the Creme Broulet. And the press is screaming that he his intent on starving the poor skeletal wraith.

I am starting to see a pattern here.

Doom - same here. Trying to dig the ticks out of the welfare system is a long, painful process accompanied by a lot of screaming.

LL - that didn't stop the Greeks though. I'm afraid the sense of entitlement is far more powerful than common sense.

Fredd - yep, that pattern broke the Romans and everyone ever since.
