    They are calling it, the European spring,
    And all that is left, is being replaced,
    11 over the last couple of years,
    With many more to follow,
    As for the brits,,,,
    Im afraid you will have to either wait until 2015,
    Or earlier if the Morecambe & Wise show collapses .

    The irony is that the UK government may have to increase recruitment to make up for the lack of private sector jobs being created. I havent got a fucking clue where the world is headed with all of this. nowhere good appears to be the answer.

    @3. Marcos are you happy with Argentina's credit rating of B? I am fairly confident that Argentina will be plunged into an oblivion far before the UK.
    The UK still has it's AAA rating for now!

    “the risk of a double dip recession had become reality in Europe”

    What a BS. Europe is still in a recession. Nothing has changed until they just let the damn banks that are broke, FAIL. Do what Iceland did.

    “2 I have a clue where UK is headed with all of this.... the toilet.”

    Yes, you're right, they're heading down the drain of the toilet. They deny it and pretend everything is fine. The whole credit rating is a farse. But ach, let them concentrate on the Falklands, poor suckers believe everything what their beloved leaders tell them.
