Dear Mr Clegg
The clock is ticking! As Britain slips back into recession your final chance of running with what is left of the Lib/Dem. Party is disappearing. I know the calculations you have made, four years hence everything will be rosy, the economy will be booming, jobs for all, but look at it now. All the blame for each disaster is being piled onto your heads, after all the conservatives were always going to cut, cut, cut, it’s in their genes. Student debt, that is your fault, housing subsidy, that’s your fault, defence cuts, that’s your fault, child benefits, that’s your fault, now all the forests are being sold off to all their rich friends, councils and police are laying off thousands, it’s all your fault. You have been dragged up a dark alley where they are kicking you to death.
Do you really believe that in four years time every one will have forgotten? with all these jobs gone, no pay rises for Joe Public and soon increases in bank rate, mortgage repayments going up, all this will be put right in four years. Private Enterprise isn’t going to employ all these people, not every one can work for Macdonald’s or as a check out clerk for the supermarkets.
Yesterday when S&P downgraded Japanese debt, the yen increased in value. America is spending its way out of recession; has Mr Osborne really got it right? The clock is ticking Mr Clegg, do you have so much in common with the people you are sitting next to?
