Labour had a large part in causing the UK element of the crisis.

He threw Clegg a coalition that Cameron himself wanted anyway. He stuffed the party with closet Lib Dems - several of whom have come out recently.

The evidence is that politicians make atrocious investment decisions that destroy value rather than create it. They seem to enjoy spaffing taxpayer's money in this way. It would be a very good thing if they were banned from investing altogether. It was precisely because Labour had made a series of very bad investment decisions that the economy ended up in financial implosion in the first place. PFI hospitals, Building Schools from Ed Balls where the schools performed worse after the rebuild, etc.

You create economic growth by encouraging people to make the economy grow because they will benefit - not political white elephants. Street appears to be a Stalinist planner who believes who can direct the economy.

Thankfully we were saved from socialist paradise just about (and I am prepared to give some credit for that to Darling, who did at least realise the seriousness of the situation).

Eventually - armed insurrection.

Surely this incident should be known as the Salem Witch hunt? Hunt is of course no longer Health Minister, but I think he did manage to get the NHS a bit more focused on outcomes rather than process. The stage managed rant was right out of the playbook this site linked to yesterday. It merely served to reinforce existing prejudices.

My personal and family experiences of the NHS have improved over the past decade or so. It needed to. There were several unsatisfactory encounters previously.

Correct. The onus is on the EU to negotiate and conclude an agreement, as called for by Article 50(2). THat will remain the case even if we leave the EU first.

It has been ratified by precisely no-one. The EU Council passed a resolution commending it to Europarl, which is hardly a surprise, given its one-sided nature.

The ratification calls first for a Europarl majority vote in favour as a first step, which has not taken place. Nor can it, since it is essential that an agreement can be concluded, which also requires the assent of the UK Parliament.

It concluded an agreement with Ollie Robbins, probably to offer him Belgian citizenship. Not even cabinet approval.

The EU Parliament has voted in favour of breaching TEU. Quelle surprise.
