Let Go With Labour!

Are you old enough to remember a Labour Party slogan of the 1960s? It went Let's Go With Labour!

These days it's more like Let go...

I've been looking into what has been happening in Britain since Labour came to power in 1997, and these are some of my findings:

Since this Government came to power we have had seven Education Acts:

Since this Government came to power we have had no fewer than eighteen Acts from the Health Department: Since this Government came to power we have had a whopping thirty Acts from the Home Office: Since this Government came to power we have had five Transport Acts: Britain could be doing so much better. We are the world's fourth largest economy. We are a nation of (generally!) hard working, energetic and enterprising people.

We have great potential, but this Government, which promised so much and had so much going for it, with two large majorities and a strong and buoyant economy, has let our country down. They have simply lost their grip and let go of Britain. .
