    Yes, good riddance !!!!!!

    Sorry, but after GB stitched up self employed sub contractors with IR35 as another tax raising wheeze I absolutely cannot stand the bloke.. completely shafted anyone who wanted to work hard, take a bit of a risk, and reap some decent rewards !
    ..shame he won't have to queue up at the local job centre eh ! I cannot think anyone in their right minds would employ him !
    Dignified speech....? You think he wrote it ?

    .....and lastly he obviously thinks anyone with an opinion is a bigot !

    I think Gordon Brown was quite a decent bloke that got lucky and wasnt really up to the task in hand, glad he's gone but I wish him well...

    And unless Cameron ****s gold bars, I think the next couple of years will be very bumpy economy and job wise!

    I think that's a pretty fair summary of the bulk of what went on. Yes as chancellor Mr Brown didn't please everyone, but I reckon overall he did a fairly good job in that post. I'm fairly confident his premiership would've been better received if Mr Blair didn't hand down such a mess; but crucially if Mr Brown had carisma and smiles to match those of Mr Cameron. The media love a nice smile, and unfortunately Mr Brown was more at home with a statute book than a photo album. I'm also pretty sure that despite the bills we're going to have to pay now, in a few years time the history books will tell a favourable story of Mr Brown's handling of the global economic situation - he did play a central role in the whole developed world's plan to stop a downturn becoming a spiral.

    I've never really been a Tory supporter, but I'm interested to see how this alliance performs, and I wouldn't like to put money either way on it at the moment. I think one of the biggest concerns will be Vince Cable's positioning in the treasury. If he's close enough to that little runt Osbourne, we might be alright; but if they've put his office out of 'kicking range', I dare say everyman is pretty much stuffed and basted.

    We'll see...

    Dignified exit-speech my arse. Failed to apologise for a catalogue of travesties, oversights and a general disposition of arrogance. Remember the 'bigoted' woman on his campaign tour? That is whom he is/was. Good riddance and I kinda like this power-sharing thing: they've put themselves on such a high pedestal that failing to live up to it will have far wider consequences than if they were a single-party government.

    if they carry on trying to claw the 6 billion this year, they are going to fall faster than 2 public school boys in soapy showers bringing the UK back into recession

    I see GB did a good job of convincing people that putting us into debt was better than making cuts where possible.
