At the weekend Gordon Brown appealed to everyday British people¬†when setting out his stall for the election. Most people in this country are fed up with dishonest politicians. Despite a recent thaw politicians of both parties are still skating on ice, not taking the plunge of proposing what to do with the ¬£178 billion hole in the public finances. This Government is running a big deficit in the polls as well as in the public finances, and it can’t tackle the former without being more honest about tackling the latter.
