Shame then that he didn`t stay and fight to get those changes made. No doubt he resigned as work & pensions minister because he didn`t have any powers to change anything, just, `do as he was told`. I get the gut feeling that these appointed ministers like Smith are assigned posts in government they don`t really want or are not the right people to be in those positions. We don`t know what goes on behind cabinet doors or why radical changes are made and think tanks make decisions that end up becoming so dire, they have such a negative impact on people`s lives, like pawns in some sick game.

There is a Tory MP called Nigel Evans who I heard speaking on Sky news before the election and the man came across as a decent person, you would never know he was a Conservative. He said something along the lines of, `Our manifesto may as well have said once you reach 75 you will be euthanized!`... relating to the dementia tax the Tories were proposing. It should have been suicidal for this government, yet look what happened. They got in AGAIN. :angry:

I also read today that our old friend George Osbourn was planning to ditch 1p and 2p pieces because they were more costly to produce than they were worth and he also had a `plan` to have a cashless society by 2020. Aren`t we glad Cameron and his crew fell on their swords....
