lets talk about the big picture...
Big Government rarely affects my day to day life, other than a few pennies here and there.
I don't smoke, or break the law and live comfortably in my own routine.
What European decisions have really affected me ?
I avoid high crime areas and keep my guard up when i am out, to prevent me becoming a victim.
I dont mind paying a bit extra tax, for schools, hospitals, roads, education, as these all benefit society as a whole.
I refuse to blame any government for my own shortcomings, as 95% of the time, it's our personnel decisions that guide our lives, not theirs.
The only party who would not have gone to Iraq is the Lib Dems, they were / are a long way from power. To pin it all on two men (Bush / Blair) is ridiculous, when just a few years before Clinton was bombing all over the place in the former Yugoslavia
The NHS was ruined by Health reforms in the 80's, and is bumping along, from crisis to crisis...unless the public wants a rise in income tax, to fund better services, this will continue
The School system has suffered change after change, through the 80's, 90's and 00's, but the major problem is the parents, giving up responsibility to the schools, and then complaining when the teachers cant cope.
TIME FOR THE UK CITIZENS TO WORK AS A COMMUNITY, IF THEY WANT THINGS TO IMPROVE.
The selfish days of the 80's have cost us a lot, people should stop blaming the policiticians, they vote for, and do something more constructive, to improve their lot.
Finally, Immigration, this country was built on immigration, immigration is a good thing, not an evil. It contributes to the economy...any economic migrant coming to the country, is here because they want to improve their lives, by far and away the most benefits and houses are being paid to the exisitng population, not the 5% of recent generation immigrants.
If we had the money from the tax lost on top earners sending their cash to off shore accounts, it would out weight the amount lost in benefit fraud anyway.
