I predict Nigel may get his wish of seeing the end of the EU. This has finally forced the hand of the Germans - They either bow to pressure or withdraw support to Athens.

The idea is somewhat flawed, i.e the government will guarantee to pay for you a standard amount whether you need the money or not. It will suck the lifeblood out the workforce. Why bother to do well...

I find this idea of benefit provision as a mean of alternative income, the most absurd. It's utterly impractical. I'm not sure how the Greens even think they will raise tax receipts if everyone is at...

Is Cameron actually helping the Lib Dems by legitimising the Green party?

It's interesting perhaps to consider that maybe Mr Cameron is playing a very long game and trying to protect the Lib Dems for future elections?

I think that he is using the Green party "ploy" as a...

So we are we exchanging whole scale root and branch spending cuts with closing tax loopholes and protests at the EU? (the second would never happen in reality). Is that enough to balance the books?
