Doom and Gloom

So Alistair Darling has been honest about what a mess the economy is in, and now his comments have only made things worse. Home Office minister Tony McNulty says the economic downturn will lead to more crime, illegal immigration and terrorism.

When even government ministers, normally so keen to play down any problems that might be of their own making, are telling us how bad things could get I think we all need to start worrying.

  1. I suspect this may be their own ‘sudden’ realisation that all is not well, no doubt it had taken a little longer for them to recognise these issues, given they are is such a cocooned and protected environment.

    That said, I completely agree with you, we should all start to be worried. A change of government may be a good start; unfortunately, it will not fix the problem, at least not in the short-term.
