Every now and again, I get annoyed

I get annoyed at the decisions made by my Government that is supposed to be for our benefit.

There have been some calamitous decisions made over the years by the governments of the day.

Privatising the energy industries, thereby putting them at the mercy of the stock markets and ensuring eventual foreign control of virtually all the energy used in Britain?

Anything for a quick buck there, eh, guys?

Shutting down entire, specialist hospitals and centralising their functions in fewer, harder to reach general and teaching hospitals with fewer beds and not enough specialist staff?

Wasn't the best idea, was it?

Invading Iraq after the followers of a Yemeni-based Saudi flew planes into American landmarks?

Um...........bad idea.

I got soooooo annoyed I resigned my Labour party membership.........yeah, like that helped.

Private finance initiatives which have left local councils and NHS trusts paying massive amounts of their income to construction companies for the forseeable future?

I'll think about voting Lib/Dem in future.

However, shutting down the entire Forensic Science Service because it's losing too much money, has to be one of the most short-sighted, bone-headed, penny pinching and short termist ideas that I've heard for a long time.

I really am absolutely speechless.
