I am tired of hearing members of the coalition blaming the last government for the state of the country's economy.
The latest attempt to pass the buck came while a Tory Party member was taking part in a discussion in Salford broadcast today on BBC 5 Live. But we need to point peoples memory to the few months following the coalition's coming into power when George Osborne proudly declared that the economy were showing signs of growth.
This proud announcement really got me because here we had a case of a man taking the praise for the success of policies implemented by the last government, and all this while happily blaming the previous government for everything thst has gone wrong in England since the sinking of the Titanic.
The current government have now been in power long enough for their policies to have worked, especially if they were working at a time when none of their policies had been fully implemented.
They must give up the blame game. They are responsible for the country falling back into recession. They are responsible for unemployment reaching a 16 year high because it is their policies that have brought the country to the condition it now finds itself in.
It is they who have failed to create employment opportunities, their answer has been schemes that take people off the live register, or to find ways to disqualify people from various benefits. They have juggled the books in the attempt to make them look proactive (a buzz word I detest). It is all about sound bites with Cameron and his chronies, they are all flash and no substance, like an expensive meal with more salad than actual substantial food.
They need to own up, accept they are failing but they never will. Instead we will keep hearing the same old tune from the coalition that it is all the fault of the last government. It is time that the government's mantra of "don't look at us...we didn't do it," dies the death it deserves.
