Liberty Bell to ring in Norwich?

The Norwich North by-election will be upon us soon or maybe I should say the result will. The campaign is already under way. One party has got my attention. It is the Libertarian Party. On their website the Libertarian candidate Thomas Burridge, who is only 18 years old, says this.

"Most sensible people will be saying, what the hell does he know about anything?

This is what I do know. The last twelve years of Labour has left my generation in massive debt. My generation will be paying off the excesses of the last twelve years for the rest of our lives. And we may even pass this debt on to our as yet unborn children. Did we have any say in the spending splurge that led to this debt mountain? No we did not.

Currently the Tories and Labour are arguing about cutting a pifling 5% off our current bloated state spending. The LPUK are talking about scrapping the whole rotten system. They will get rid of the high personal taxes, squalid services, corrupt Parliament and start again.

I may not win this time, but I will be back in five years, and in another five years and in another five years. By then the guilty ones will still be enjoying their gold-plated pensions or will be long dead, but the debt will remain.

I am from the Debt Generation and I believe only the LPUK has fresh answers for a new generation."

He sees the stark truth and feels he represents the "Debt Generation". Isn't it a crying shame that the main parties seem to be in utter denial about this, more so Gordon Brown, who appears to think that increased spending will never have to be paid for?
