|Quoting John (scouse) Hirons,|
People moan & groan about the effects of the cuts but dont want to blame the source of them,
There is no way this or any thread is going to change the minds of those (including me) who have entrenched positions but if it gives someone food for thought or influences those amongst us who have no political axe to grind then its not a bad thing. Dont forget its an open debate & if anyone wishes to post in favour of the latest policies with their reasons for their stance then I for one would be more than pleased to see it & would gladly join in debate with them.
Okay Scouse, people moan and groan about whichever of the two main political parties are in power, nothing changes there, what is missing is the will and determination to do something about it, but that would mean effort, and possibly putting oneself out, far better to moan and groan and hope someone else will make the effort and do the work, then if it /whatever works out, great, if it goes belly-up, something else to crib about, it werent me mister.
There really is no point in debating if both sides are in entrenched positions, waste of good oxygen. It is my opinion that everyone should keep an open mind, as far as politics are concerned, being entrenched restricts your options. I have swung both sides the political divide, (ie voted) but to be honest have never profited greatly from either party being in power. I am where I am through my own endeavour , which has been working bloody hard all my working life.
At the moment we are in a bad place, but would the other party be able to do better, I think not
Never say a humorous thing to a man who does not possess humour. He will always use it in evidence against you.
