Things can only get better?

Whatever happened to the last politician swept to power by offering the electorate hope, change and a new direction!?!

TB's now collecting what was promised him in instalments of £150,000 per after dinner speech.

Mark, perhaps I should have said "Whatever happened to the last country seduced by a politician offering hope, change and a new direction!?!"

Absolutely Mr S. Most sensible sorts see him not as a Muslim/black racist or on the other hand as a black saviour/creator of a new world order etc etc but just another charismatic politician who will waste money and not acheive much. Just like Blair.

I have seen nothing in his speeches that indicates any practical plans behind all those marvellous words. Give it three years and there will be a lot of very disappointed people.
