The one run by Blair ... cabinet full of public schoolboys, lawyers and policy wonks. Never done a proper days manual work in their lives. Loved Europe, allowed millions of illegal immigrants, started two wars war to look tough. Sold peoples pensions down the river because they thought the money market would keep giving them unearned income. So committed to the advancement of young people that they raised student fees.Promised to build five eco-towns then reneged on it. Committed us to a prestigious olympics that we couldn't afford and only offered any benefits to London. Individually swindled thousands of pounds on expenses claims.
The Blair/Brown governments failed, becaue they failed to enact radical poicies, instead they became the tories lite and courted people like Murdoch. Their educational and social,bnackgrounds were irrelevant. As far as I'm aware they all worked for a living. Prescott was deputy prime minister-which public school did he go to?
I'm trying to think of a labour prime minister, or even a party leader who was a horny handed son of toil. McDonald no, Attlee(arguably one of britain's greatest prime ministers) no, Gaitskell no, Wilson no, Foot no, Smith no, Callaghan-ah yes at last. He was a petty officer in the Royal Navy...what were his achievements in office apart from handing power to Thatcher on a plate?
BY the way yhou forgot to mention the muslim threat,never forget the muslim threat.
The last labour government betrayed the people that elected it. There was a chance to alter the social, economical and political landscape of the country, and it wqasn't taken.
This had nothing to do with the educational;, social, or work background of the people who made up that government.
