As matters stand the UK is in big trouble, a deadbeat serially useless Government, hanging on by its fingertips until the next general election is declared, it has to be before June 2010 at the latest but I still think an early snap date of March 25th is on the cards!
We are fighting a war in Afghanistan no one wants, with brave almost super human troops that are ill equipped and driven to the limits of human endurance.
We have a a selection of British Government ministers with little or no experience of commercial life and a public service broadcaster which thinks it is completing with allcomers for the best on screen talent, when in reality many people would willingly throw their lot in with the publicly funded (through a mandatory licence fee) BBC for very little money.
The fact being that commercial TV is short of cash, the BBC is constantly bidding against jtself for talent, at home on rival services, this just pushes up the cost for no valid reason.
Things are little better in the USA. We all had great hopes for President Obama, but the system seems to be wearing him down. He needs a wake ip call and good people he can rely on. He's not there yet!
But I started with how bad will it get for the UK? Let me put it this way an iceberg is directly in the way of our state of the art ship.
You could say There Is Trouble Ahead Nothing Is Complete ,the memonic is simply TITANIC!" Man the life boats, Politicans and spin doctors first, sharks respect them so won't be copming anywhere near the rest of us bobbing up and down in the freezing water! Oh did I say a rapid thaw and flash flooding is on ther way? No, I thought not!
