An Open Letter To Mr Clegg

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?

Tic Toc Tic Toc!

About michaeldouglasbosc

I am retired and live with my wife on a small olive finca in the middle of a forest in the mountains of Spain in Catalonya. I served 9years in the armed services, am an engineer and because of my love of navy sailing ships a naval historian of the 1700-1800's, plus the author of 10 books. When I retired I started writing adult books my first being A Soldiers Wind. Then came Stanley's story again adult books such was his life. Another book on life in the 1950's this very much an adult book. I have now returned to my love of the sea and my latest navy book 'A Plymouth Story' follows the life of Dr James Blackstock. But Clearing In The Forest is an historical fantasy set in the middle ages at the end of King Johns reign. All the books are published on Kindle and Create a Space in paperback. I have worked all my life and for relaxation I sailed a coastal yacht for many years, but deep inside me was a writer waiting to get out. So when I retired I started writing I find story telling both relaxing and - for me - a pleasure.
