In other news... do we have any estimates...

... for the point at which TV journos / presenters will stop asking Tory / Lib Dem politician questions to which the answer is 'look you useless ****wit, this is what we experts term a 'coalition government', therefore what we are implementing is not either party's policies so asking me why we're not implementing what's in our manifesto is a waste of your time, my time and the viewers' time'?

As was the case with the last Tory government I am irked both by the government and the reaction to it - the later particularly the people in the noosphere (*) who spent 13 years, not unreasonably, moaning about the Labour government who have now retconned it into 13 years of the Socialist land of milk and honey.

[I am also irked by the letters / columns in The Manchester Quisling saying things on the lines of 'we're back to GP Fundholding which was done from 1991 to 1997 as was a bit success'. Which is not my recollection from my Dad trying to get treatment for things in his declining years, but to what extent that was the GP Fundholding and to what extent it was the GPs being a bunch of incompetent buffoons is not 100% clear to me.]

(*) not my friends' list, you are all lovely
