6. I agree that they need a shake-up...
either they are blatantly corrupt, or in some cases they're inattentive to their own financial affairs and relying on corrupt accountants. The latter would be less of a problem, if it weren't associated with their being similarly inattentive to the country's financial affairs and relying on corrupt bankers!!!!!

However, I'm a bit worried that it could be the wrong kind of wake-up call for many citizens: i.e. that it might lead to a Tory victory. If you think that New Labour passed bad laws, you should have seen the Tories! Of course, the two have been pretty similar - that's a large part of the problem - but the Tories as a group are still worse; and especially disastrous in times of recession, given their penchant for cuts, and lack of interest (at best) in preventing unemployment. Unfortunately, memories of the sheer awfulness of the Tories are fading after 12 years, especially among younger people, and especially with our tabloids being what they are - basically the equivalent of America's RW talk-shows- I fear that the Tories will get back in.
