    Must dust off that loud hailer!
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
    Courage to change the things I can,
    And wisdom to know the difference.

    It's OK. The conservatives aren't going to spend at all. Quite the opposite. Marvelous

    Savage cuts to the most vulnerable in our society and you're talking about splashing out and Christmas presents for children?
    Sadly, these people (yes, real people) will be choosing whether to heat their homes, adequately dress their children or eat properly. These conveniently named "austerity cuts" don't wash with me I am afraid.
    I am neither reliant on benefits (never have been) nor disabled. Apart from child benefit, I claim nothing from the state, not even tax credits. It is unlikely that I will be unemployed in my lifetime. These measures affect neither me nor my immediate family, yet they hurt me more than you could possibly imagine. I will never vote for that, and thankfully (if the polls are right) neither will my fellow (Scottish) electorate.

    You are right yummymummy - although I hope that the fact that there is a large number of SNP MPs in Westminster challenges these awful policies and ideologies so that the UK parliament cant implement them in the whole of the UK.

    We will wait and see if SNP really will do any better they have had 7 years and nothing yet to deal with the problems mentioned.

    Wasn't talking about the SNP, was talking about the electorate...
