    Never imagined Corbyn could look more economically competent than the Tories.

    Did you ever imagine not recovering from a recession ten years down the line?

    It wasn't a common or garden recession though, was it?
    It exposed a fundamental flaw of the liberalised financial markets: that a small bunch of traders repackaging bad debt with good managed to almost collapse the Western World, which is still only being kept afloat by flooding the market with liquidity a.k.a QE.

    People haven't learnt the lesson though - there are still cretins on here and in the wider world who want even more liberalisation of the financial markets. So the next crash is going to happen sometime soon.
    Hard Brexit now!

    It's pretty clear that Labour is now the natural party of government and the last few years were simply the last throes of what is basically now a defunct political party unable to move forward from 19th century Britain.

    As opposed to the 20th Soviet Union...?

    Labour may be the party of government, although I can't see it myself, going by their past success record. Snag is, the puppet Corbyn and his union masters aren't Labour or anything to do with it. Shame supposedly intelligent people can't see that.

    Of course Corbyn is a left wing socialist but as bad as he is, he's still far better than the shambles you have at the moment. Surprised that there are so called intelligent people who don't understand that.

    They did quite well from 1997 to 2005. They got complacent and started spending a bit too much around 2005 so were unprepared for the Derivatives Crisis of 2007 , but the latter is hardly their fault.
