    I get feeling the Tories know the game is up and they will lose next election and are ruining the economy so Labour will have no good basis to work from.
    There are others who hold that conspiracy theory.

    That is one view, but another is that if you look back in history in a down turn or a recession, the poor get poorer and the rich get richer.

    The wealthy and rich ride it out and take the opportunity to clean up as and when others are forced to sell up. I suspect if we looked at what companies, and boards large number of the Tories are on and their levels of wealth we would see them in a good position to take advantage.

    “Nothing discloses real character like the use of power. It is easy for the weak to be gentle. Most people can bear adversity. But if you wish to know what a man really is, give him power. This is the supreme test. It is the glory of Lincoln that, having almost absolute power, he never abused it, except on the side of mercy.”

    “You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police ... yet in their hearts there is unspoken fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts: words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home -- all the more powerful because forbidden -- terrify them. A little mouse of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic.”

    There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself. -- Johann Sebastian Bach.

    Thank you Thing!

    I wouldn't mind being able to do that, save on electricity. I bet if I stuck a light fitting in my mouth I could get my head to light up, but probably not practical.
