Massively increasing tax and spending while achieving nothing is incompetence.

Certainly, no British government will be able to do what they have been sent to do as long as we belong to the EU. We are in a situation where we have 450 million European citizens with the LEGAL right to come and live in Britain and receive state handouts immediately upon arrival should they require it; how stupid a policy is that? That is what these clowns have gotten us into. We have business and home regulations dumped on us from Brussels by the lorry load and our government either, cannot do anything about it or won't. But perhaps most damaging of all, is mindset of our politicians, which is, Britain cannot go it alone outside of the EU! That mindset is fatal to our survival as an independent, sovereign country. When Cameron says we are better inside the EU than out because 50% of our trade is with the EU! That says it all! He is a loser and so is this country. He is frit (to use a great leader's phrase) to lead outside of his comfort zone within the EU. He has a testicular problem when it comes to leading Britain in the direction that it should go. Can you imagine Churchill putting up with this situation? Churchill was in favour of a federal Europe - to stop them trying to kill each other for a 3rd time. But he was also implacably opposed to Britain being part of it! He supported the project but only from the outside! Britain was lied to by Edward Heath and has been failed by every Prime Minister since his tenure, including Blair, Brown and Cameron. The Irish Star had a good front page headline to describe their government cabinet a few months ago, it read "Useless Gobshites". That is how I feel about our lot!

He has come to the same conclusion as many such as myself.Govt. is a huge burden on society that misallocates public money through ignorance and favors to buy votes. Limited Govt. is the answer! Most of the smart guys work for themselves..many of the ones that can't get a real job become public servants...and vote themselves a raise while every one else is cutting back.
