A Broken British Society or Piffle?

The Radio Four Today programme this morning diverted the debate on Britain's malaise (as headlines blazed that its economy has been confirmed as grinding to a halt) to a question of whether the Mayor of London and one of the highest profiled Conservatives in the country or the Leader of the Opposition were at odds or in agreement as to whether the breakdown of Society's values was a crisis or mere 'piffle'!

Whatever one's views, surely ordinary members of the electorate must query whether these two Old Etonian, Oxford, Bullingdon Tories - David Cameron and Boris Johnson have either the necessary experience or knowledge to properly consider the topic.

It is clear they also lack even the correct vocabulary.

Hopefully as the economic realities sink home a proper opposition will emerge.
