When the inevitable implosion came and it all collapsed as a house of cards, the British Government had to pump in thousands of millions of pounds to prevent the imminent destruction of the banking system, along with people's savings, jobs and assets. The Tories would have done nothing and just let it all self-destruct, along with most of the remaining economy. Now they have the gall to criticize the Government for the size of the debts incurred in preventing a devastating financial collapse.
The biggest insult is that the top people in the banks and elsewhere, ultimately responsible for this mess, are most unlikely ever to be supporters or members of New Labour. Most likely they were Tories to a man. Do we really want those responsible for this disaster and their friends to be entrusted running the nation?
