Courageous Government Needed for Big Infrastructure Projects



It is becoming increasingly difficult to say what state the global economy is in as bad news seems to keep mixing with good.

Some economic indicators are suggesting pockets of brightness, whilst anecdotal evidence can often point in the opposite direction.

On a personal basis, the commuter car parks seem emptier than I can ever remember, with even the ones that are close to the station being only two thirds full.

However, this might be the summer holiday effect coupled with the fact that the last weekend was probably the only bit of summer we are likely to get this year.

Having said that, with V-festival ending, the train did seem to have rather more young ladies than is normally the case.

The papers are full of calls for Gorgeous George to stimulate the economy via a cocktail of tax cuts and big infrastructure projects.

It is difficult to argue against either of these proposals, particularly if you feel that this should be the base camp for any conservative policy, no matter what the economic environment.

For the last twenty five years, whichever party has been in power, the hard decisions have been ducked and put off to some future date.

We all know that new Power Stations, Airports, Railways and Roads will be unpopular with whichever constituencies they are going to be built in.

We also know that a whole new raft of luddites can be guaranteed to leap into action when the issues start being discussed.

However, this is not a good enough reason to fudge one of the main reasons for being in power; managing the future wellbeing of the nation.

At the moment, we have a bunch of politicians whose main remit appears to be ensuring that they get re-elected.

As Boris Johnson has clearly stated, it is time for government to stop 'pussy footing around' and actually make those 'courageous' decisions...
