The time is becoming right for a dictatorship. Democracy and capitalism fails us as much as it succeeds (and the UKs bipolar first past the post system us particularly deficient). The Chinese system seems quite attractive.... and as it the only country to ever succesfully manage wholesale population control the system has got my vote (ironic pun intended).

I have felt some pride in our country this week.While the jabbering French Greeks and Irish are behaving like a collection of over -tired children this great Nation has rolled its sleeves up and supported the coalition's common sense policies.
Important that ,because political stablity is directly related to the rates at which we can borrow .People often mistake the wealth of a Nation for the wealth of its subjects. Lenders do not, and the moderate stoic and law abiding subjects of her Majesty are the reason that, despite annual deficits as high as any developed Nation, our borrowing costs remain manageable . We are one of only four countries never to default . We grumble but pay our taxes, we pull together, we queue.
Of course ultra low interest rates are not a reason to go out and aquire a spare house and you don't know how thin the ice is until you go through it . Oh no ,we are not out of danger which is all the more reason ignore peripheral malcontents and their utopian fairy stories. Those who ferment selfish sectionalism envy and extremism should be shunned.
The Green Party are such people and ignoring them and,in particular Matt Kent, is a patriotic duty we must all discharge with quiet but implacable determination.
It will turn out nice again.

As Newmania seems to think that he is an authority in his own right on this forum, maybe he should consider starting his own party as he seems to have all the answers.

If Newmania starts a new party will Matt, out of admiration for his ideas and steadfast leadership be prepared to join it? There's every reason for anyone with any economic sense to bail out of the Greens. The three major parties, business people and almost all economists are agreed that the deficit needs to be addressed urgently by a mix of cuts and tax rises. Exactly what mix should be applied is what divides them. The Greens who are just Old Labour in disguise want to increase public expenditure to grow the economy out of deficit. But, I thought the Greens were against continuous growth because it will untimately destroy the planet.

The Greens are as bonkers as UKIP, Just in the other direction and without the xenophobia. Incidentally there's a UKIP blogger called Junius who points out the frauds and hypocrisy of the the leaders and higher echelons of his own party. If anyone still votes UKIP after reading Junius they are part of the Bonkers brigade too. See h++p://juniusonukip.blogspot.com/

Whether you like or dislike Green Party, at least they aren't a bunch of U-turning hypocrites like the coalition. What General Election Policies are the LibDems actually going realise? And same old Tories, keep the rich happy, bash the poor!

The Greens in Germany went into coalition with the Social Democrats we saw that they were no different to any other party and even supported the war in Afghanistan. The Greens in Ireland are backing a government that is cutting even more harshly than the Tories here. I somehow don't think the Greens here would be any different if they had a sniff of office.

Matt, supporter may not be very polite, but you aren't exactly responding to the points raised in this thread that you've started. The Greens may be much nicer than UKIP but are they completely bonkers?

I'm with Newmania on this. Strong medicine, but an opportunity to fix some longstanding issues should not be missed. Next step: integrating social and health care (perhaps some savings to be made there?) and addressing the question of old-age provision.

Speak for yourself supporter. I am glad for the posts of Matt Kent (and all the others I don't agree with) but much less appreciate of abusive posts from people whose main claim to fame is that they support a parochial football club, and especially when these posts are aimed at a person who has got off his rear to fight for something he believes is right and necessary for the general good.
Don't suppose you'd just come back from a lunch time pint or 3?

According to Labour, they all joined them at one a minute. The local lot reckon to have doubled their membership, and it is the largest party by memebership in the area ( no councillors though for the last 25 years by my reckoning) However if we look at memebership then Green I am afraid is mainly the colour of envy.
