I agree too. No sign of a Labour bounce just a slow down in their demise. Brown is out and it will become more apparent as this year unfolds.

Too much is going wrong...all of Browns policies have failed. His management of the economy has been a disaster, his rescue plan has failed and he is about to try it again.

In two years when there are 3 million unemployed and those that are working are having to repay these huge loans, Labours fall will be sealed.
