What should the Coalition do for Britain ?

They could try and understand that QE is flooding the markets with £s from the top. Nothing much reaches down to the man on the street.
In my opinion if the Govt wants to stimulate a sluggish British economy then :-
1. introduce a monthly QE but at the bottom and on a diminishing value, say 10% a month.
2. Reduce the tax on fuel to 0%. The present ridiculously high figure makes the UK uncompetitive.
3. Put illegal drugs on the same basis as alchohol.
4.Tell the EU and it's Court of Human Rights to go jump into the Channel. Cancel all the red tape they are strangling business with etc.



And that's just for starters

They should join the yanks for a war on Iran in 2013 once the US election is done and dusted.

The best thing they could do is enter a mass suicide pact,

It's not a panacea, but it would be a good start.

I watched a little of an interview with Mad-and-bad on Bloomberg. The poor guy is completely out of touch with reality. Thinks Israel/USA won't ever attack Iran's nuclear bits ! Daft as a brush by civilized standards.

Resignation would be a step in the right direction.

the Goverment wants to stop sticking its nose in the private sector and also sort out the gross inefficiencies in anything it does

I worked in the public sector for 3 years as an accountant........unbelievable the inefficiency and wastage I saw. .......couldnt wait to scoot back to the private sector and good old capitalism

Some long term strategy that any "short term" government can't tinker with except round the edges would be a help. But who looks further than their nose nowadays?

A coin toss, random selection of policy.

Far cheaper, more efficient, and probably even more effective.

Alternatively, turn the whole thing into an X factor style show and let the plebs vote using premium rate lines. That would be rather lulzy

If you want a serious solution then Politicians should be selected on the same basis as jury service. If you get called up, you should be adequately compensated, given a large bonus based on performance, then tossed back into the real world at the end of say 5 years.

You could even set some sensible criteria for eligibility. For example age limits, sex, experience etc. that should sort it out

If the UK is prepared to pay me enough, I'd sort it out for them !
