Reykjavík on the Thames: Hard Times Ahead for Britain

The UK had another debate last night, and the polls shows the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats in a surprisingly close race, with Labour under Gordon Brown continuing to slip. We will be looking for more polls (not connected in any way to Mr. Rupert Murdoch thank you) over the weekend after yesterday's televised debates.

The election seems likely to result in a 'hung Parliament' with no clear majority for any party, suggesting the possibility of a coalition government.

As a reminder to American readers, most of whom do not even know that the Brits are holding an election or how their governments are formed, the Liberal Democrats would be considered the 'reform party' in this election, what the Yanks would call a 'third party.'

And to put an edge on it, the New Stateman reports that Mervyn King suggests that the coming austerity to be imposed on UK citizens to support the City Banks will ensure that the next party in power will not be elected again for many many years. more...

Nor will they because NO party will be in. The reason? The elephant in the room - the EU. In fact, it was a trick question.

I think what you said made a ton of sense. But, think about this,
what if you added a little content? I am not suggesting your information isn't solid., but what if you added a post title that grabbed folk's attention?
I mean "Reykjav�k on the Thames: Hard Times Ahead for Britain" is kinda vanilla.
You ought to peek at Yahoo's front page and see how they write news titles to grab people to click. You might add a video or a picture or two to get readers excited about everything've written.

In my opinion, it might bring your posts
a little bit more interesting.

4T plus capsules have been designed specifically to remove all the hindrances in a male's system which stops him from gaining optimum erection. Your problem is that you have a circulation problem that could be critical if you don't do anything about it.
Usually this product can be taken about 60 minutes before sexual activity.

Thankfully, our truck is equipped with extra radiators for towing our
camping trailer so it didn't overheat, but it had a huge loss of power. There is an incredible potpourri of hazardous weather underway or expected in the next 36 hours. But, given its size and its current and projected impact, this storm could be every bit as dangerous as the mythological Hydra.

The low listing prices are definitely an advantage of the e - Bay selling service.
Select a buyer who offers a secure and trusted platform.

This may sound obvious but when you sell a business it's more important to listen and ask questions than continually talk to try and 'sell' the business.

(Thank you rounds are always welcome, of course.
You must definitely be planning to make it special
and memorable by keeping a good theme, ordering the best food and choosing the best
games. The decline of the East side blues scene was disheartening, but, it also gave rise to the need for a fresh start, which came in the
form of the next blues-only venue, Antone's, founded by the late Clifford Antone, during the summer of 1975.

Hey! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog
platform are you using for this website? I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've
had problems with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
