Our political parties are seriously hurting the country now. Both of them. We need a referendum vote on Term limits for congress and SCOUS and campaign finance reform. Nothing more or it will be turned into a never ending argument and well get nothing. Just those two things and all things can be achieved after just one or two election cycles. DEMAND IT!

Sure, austerity ending was a condition for recovery, but this is the very worst way to do it.

Cameron and Osbourne got themselves into a hole by talking austerity, that is why they can’t relax fiscal policy directly.

August data have already dismissed the claim but nevermind. Sub-prime Osborne is reinflating the property bubble in view of the next elections whilst the budget deficit is much higher than on the Continent. Wake-up and smell the coffee: nobody believes the Uk miracles anymore

The latter is the state of “stasis.” The warriors are playing their inside-Beltway games, which only appear to be about the debt ceiling and the Obamacare funding.
In fact, it is the institutional crisis.
Not exactly a popular topic. But if SCOTUS makes the political system “on sale,” we may have an interesting discussion in the nearest future.
Sorry for not saying a word about Mr. Abe and Mr. Cameron.
