Is it me or does it seem that we are forever banging our heads against a brick wall and everything as a result is slowing down even more? And the wretched excuse everyone trots out is we can’t do anything because of the election? We are well used to oh it’s Christmas or oh it’s the holiday season or oh I can’t be ……. well you know what I mean.
Anyway I’m off to the Lake District this weekend for some walking and to visit some good friends of ours, he is the chief executive of the Holker estate up there and they own, amongst other business, Burlington slate so it will be interesting to catch up with him on how things are fairing for them.
Back to the politics though, did you see the debate last night, I didn’t realise that the Liberals wanted to put VAT on new housebuilding, I suppose no surprise that the Tories want to reduce the school building programme (guess whoever gets in will reduce that somehow) but did you also hear Gordon Brown say that the lack of housebuilding was the housebuilders fault! I just don’t know who to pick none of them particularly inspire me for the industry.
Have to say it’s getting all quite worrying about the economy if you listen to how Greece, Spain and Portugal are performing. Still on the up side we could be in for a good World Cup soon not many days to the kick off now. Lets’ hope their football teams perform just as badly as their economies!
