Gold, incentives and 'meh': how the major parties' election pledges stack up


This election gives me pretty much the same feeling as if the worst heart sink ever had booked the entire day with me. I view the current crop of political mediocrities much the same way as bunging my bare hand down a septic drain to clear whatever it is blocking. (and yes I do now have a set of drain rods) I pretty much avoid the TV news and turn several pages in the newspaper unread. And yet I will vote. The local lad does hit bit for the community and manages to keep his nose clean in the Westminster sh1tfest so he'll get my vote. But, if asked, I will suggest GPs cut their ties to the NHS. I cannot see a way out of the multitude of wrongs being done by HMG and NHSE . A few brave souls need to jump in affluent areas. Then more will follow. NHS GP will be a rump poor buggers.
