Labour destroyed this Nations economy even our grandchildren will be paying for it, why vote them in ever again?

Surely you mean Thatcher ruined it?

According to a recent PWC report, she missed the opportunity to create a sovereign wealth fund of nearly half a trillion pounds from North Sea Oil revenues, choosing instead to give it away in tax breaks for the wealthy.

And Labour missed the oportunity to do anything constructive at all during their last disasterous reign. They ran up the biggest national debt ever, sold all of our gold reserve at the lowest price ever, precided over the biggest fall in education standards, the biggest widening of the wages gap ever. And, to top it all off, let the highest earners get away with only paying 40p/£ for all but the last month of their term.
Having said that, there's none of them worth a spit IMO!

The uk was in very serious trouble in the 70's, pre Thatcher. She didn't ruin it. It was a wreck. We are an ok-ish economy now. We were a basket case then. The only thing that hasn't changed is that Labour was a joke then and still is.

Maybe it's our age. Sorry to sound presumptious about yours. That said, my teenage acquaintances think twitter is crap and don't use it. Maybe wrinklies and pimplies don't like it and middies do?

Your right about being of a certain age,however I am not complaining about the medium itself.....it's what said (or not said) that annoys me. I really do think that the "reporting" is total rubbish and a total wast of time....very surprised the editor allows it.

Well, I suppose it does allow for a fairly fluid and interactive approach, allowing various news and views to be heard in real time.

How much we learn from it is the big question, and as with 24 hour tv news, more is sometimes less.

I think the WN's web presence in general is pretty good. I'm in two minds about twitter, though. Be interesting to see if they still use it in a few years' time.
