I think they should. Their fiscal policy stinks, unemployment is too high, their quality of products is too low. They need to have some guidance.

Hang up and live.

"Their fiscal policy stinks"

Compared to Spain and Greece? And who introduced us to sub-prime mortgages?

"unemployment is too high"

But lower than the European average of 10.3% and, at 8.2%, identical to that in the USA.

"their quality of products is too low"

What is good quality - Big Macs? Are Jaguars and Land Rovers worse quality than your average GM product?

"They need to have some guidance."

But not, I fear, from you.

I'm not sure that politics is really a suitable subject for these forums.

Since Big Mac is a trademark I'm sure that you can work out which one I mean. Apple Macs are merely overpriced, but of average quality (and made in China); Big Macs are cheap and nasty.

Perhaps it would be easier if I compared a fine English Cheddar Cheese with American plastic?

I'm from the UK but are you aware that Computing.Net is a US website and therefore its participants are mainly from the USA and Canada? As such, even in The Lounge, it is not really the best website to choose for such a question. I'm sure there are plenty of UK based political websites that would be far more suitable.

There is also a possibility of it turning into an undesireable and unhelpful mud slinging match. There's a hint of it already and we are only up to #5 (including this one).

It I were the webmaster I would consider dumping this thread before it goes bad.

... and what pray tell will you do? I can appreciate your interest in a vast number of subjects and input is welcomed however I have noted that some discussion initiated by you tends to be somewhat low key.

I would hope that Justin pulls the plug on this one!

Politics, religion, abortion, and masterbation are all going to cause an argument regardless of where you bring them up. Odd though if you look closely they are all the same subject.

Just my opinion but there are no bad subjects just closed minded participants.

Not sure using Spain or Greece is a good mark to strive for.

Also the UK has a poor way of calculating unemployment. Great numbers of Northern England's unemployed and underemployed are not counted. Basically a third of the north is on the dole aren't they?

Also we didn't get to the quality of products. Other than a few DB's the rest of the products stink.

Hang up and live.

Spain and Greece ar part of the Euro zone. Britian is not. That is why Spain and Greece are in such a mess. Britain is no worse than anyt other developed country and a lot better than some, So who needs guidance?

Basically a third of the north is on the dole aren't they?

NO they are not. The national average is around 8.5%. The worst region the North East it 11.5% The only ones that may not be counted are those that are for one reason or another, are not actually drawing unemployment benefits. Those that are drawing benefits are most definitely counted.

Perhaps it would be easier if I compared a fine English Cheddar Cheese with American plastic?

Nah, Cheshire Cheese if much better.
