Quite possibly it's the time difference, but I'm always alone on the board! I'm so lonely! But I am getting some valuable information. Thanks UK pals. OH by the way--in my own PERSONAL opinion, not reflecting that of any political affliation or government body, I MISS TONY BLAIR!

Y'know, I don't know exactly what I liked about Blair. He was straightforward and determined, and he was in agreement w/Bush (I'm a Republican), so that helped. I liked his sense of timing, his intellegence, ---I just liked him. To be honest, I don't even know your new PM's name! Isn't that pitiful?

No not at all - I think you are unlikely to like him as much though as they are totally different, time will tell if he actually helps this country ;)

How's PM Brown doing, in your opinion? How closely do you all watch our elections? (Yes, we in the South DO say 'you all' or 'y'all' in less formal settings!)

I won't be voting at all - I think to make a true objective and educated vote, you have to closely follow and understand the various party policies, which I don't. I think the majority of the general public base their votes on party leader personalities (as with the rest of the world) and IMO that's the wrong reason to vote for a government.

I think that's true for many people. I feel though that this government has handled funds poorly, allowed an unpleasant violence and benefit exploitation culture to emerge, systematically eliminated many personal freedoms, and those are just some of the domestic points I hold against them. On a personal level, I have to admit that I feel Gordon Brown is an appalling representation for the nation.
