Cameregg rules (but hopefully not for long)…

So now we have the two-headed monster, Cameregg, in No. 10, mainly thanks to the Labour party reverting to pre-1997 type and self-destructing. Terrific!

So to all the chronically sick and disabled out there, I should like to wish you all the very best of luck for the future. You’re going to need it .

On the employment front, in the quarter to March 2010, the jobless total reached about 2.5 million in the UK.

In April 2010 the jobless total fell by 217,000.

Would anyone care to speculate on which of these figures the shiny, new, government will be likely to focus on?

Personally, I suspect that April’s figures will be quietly ignored. But, hey, that’s just me…

Whatever happens, though, keep in mind, in the next few weeks and months, when Cameregg is rubbishing Labour’s employment record,  that, in the Thatcher era, the jobless total exceeded 3 million.

Always worth remembering that.

Update: – Just seen that Cameregg are proposing a bill to fix the parliamentary term at 5 years. Does that mean losing a vote of confidence means we still can’t get rid of the buggers if they screw up?

  1. Dear Ron,
    I agree wholeheartedly with you. Unfortunately,we have the agony of waiting to see what may unfold. Great blog as usual,
    Many Thanks,

    • Thanks, Cath.

      One of the few advantages of getting older is that I’m now out of the IB system. Apparently, though, they’re still going to review my entitlement in 2011. Should be interesting…

      By the way, news bulletins are bigging up the last quarter’s unemployment figures, while completely ignoring the far better figures from last month. No surprise there, then.
