Notice he didnt say they would, he said the governenment should have. Its also in direct contradiction to what Charles Kennedy said this morning. I think he was pretty much talking out of his rear end to be honest.
Not saying the Tory response was an awful lot better though. There seems to be a general dire lack of imagination on the part of all the main parties.
I know its been said before, but can you imagine if the government was pumping into MGR what it STILL spends every month on the dome.
The thing I cant belive is that no-one is suggesting some way of tiding the company over, or at least shutting it down (not sending in administrators) for the duration of the election. How on earth are ministers meant to leaise (sp?) with MGR and decide what's best when they are campaigning in an election????? Its madness.
