Why do toffee nosed tories spraff on about the economic crisis they inherited from Labour?
A tory government would have been just as prone to a global recession as the Labour party was when they were in power. The irony here is Britain was pulling itself out of the recession after Brown's fiscal changes saw economic growth, this right on top of the change over from a Labour goverment to Tory one. Two years later that growth has tailed into a second recession as predicted by Labour.

The fact is that all our governments overspend - it's called democracy. They want to be popular in order to win the next election and save their jobs. Nothing wrong with that.
