I think those administrations Major, blair, brown screwed us up extremely badly. We was already in not good position from thatcher privatisation screwup, forgotten generation big unemployment, destroying our manufacturing. Although all governments have had to deal with the computer boom losing jobs and mechinism they failed to change the country to cope.
Dont think one single regime at fault but combination many years of policies not good for britain and what was good for party as vote catching trash policies. I blame at least 33 years and selfish politics is still happening under cameron. Half the policies nothing to do with UK recovery/debt management but to force people in a hole. All we doing making one heap mess into one heap of bigger mess.
Although I correctly blamed blair administration for this policy it had makings to be good idea but badly rotten implemented.
if the system in place and been properly setup I would imagine the blame is trying to do it on the cheap using it companies who undercut others but not capable doing the job. Now would assume those tenders was under brown administration.
By jove, what a splendid post old chap. And the first one to look at the wider picture, rather than being party political.
