I have not been following GB politics very closely, but I see a huge similarity between the two leaders. Brown started little bit earlier then O and made same mistakes O is making now: Overspending and overtaxing the country to it's knees. So, if anyone is into GB politics what would be your prediction? Is Brown going to be accountable for anything? And Brits please chime in. Has life in GB gotten much worse for a white male with engineering degree who works his butt off and pays taxes and doesn't live on welfare while dealing drugs?

British politicians
The hot political news here for the last few weeks has been how the politicians of all parties have been using tax payers money to finance everything in their own personal expenses,from having moats cleaned to paying for second homes(some third homes)Gordon Brown having precided over the economy for the last ten years and only now deciding that boom and bust is not actually a thing of the past,is seeing his cabinet members leaving or resigning over the expenses scandal like rats leaving a sinking ship.How much longer he will stay as our prime minister is anyones guess.Being a politician is not so good when your expenses are under scrutiny from the British public.We are all furious and disgusted over this.The Daily Telegraph is releasing these expenses claims slowly covering all the parties.Makes interesting reading.Take a look.

we in the UK are in at the deep end with the water just over our noses.

Basically He's done a scorched earth policy and the level of debt the UK is in means whoever takes over afterwards has a posioned chalice to drink from.

Its going to be very very ugly in the next 20 years or so in the UK. Taxes have to rise again to pay the debt level.

As a CEng wages have been depressed and jobs are being exported simply due to the fact costs are so high to employ folk

I'm afraid that's not going to help and once you reach the zone of diminishing returns higher taxes bring less money to the budget and kill taxpayers livelihood at the same time. Once that process starts you get breakdown of government and social unrest. I think UK is closer to this disaster, but US is following right behind. California has accomplished passing a point of no return already and federal government is next.

Welcome to socialist politics. They steal from the rich and give to... themselves!

Anything is possible if you don't know what you are talking about!
