Mrs. Monk's Would-be Diary, should have been written by Mrs. Monk, since she is the "Writer" in the family.
However, since she is a writer only in the conceptual sense, I have undertaken to fill these pages on her behalf.
If not by her, these pages will certainly be about her, and other important matters of the day

Mrs Monk’s Would-Be Diary .........

Dear William Haque

13 April 2010

this morning on Breakfast TV,  you complained about too much government intervention with British Business.

This would be consistent with historic Tory philosophy, and indeed with all Tory Manifestos, that you at least, appear to be emotionally attached to this very day, unlike your leader.

We were of course  led to believe that the current Tory position is that Gordon Brown failed to “intervene”, and failed to regulate British Business, and failed to regulate British Banks, and that his failure to regulate caused the current economic crisis. And who could disagree when the banks so badly failed to honour the trust that was presented to them by new Labour in the form of “Soft Regulation”.

As you and I know, current Cameroon policy is counter to historic Tory views, and that the so called “soft touch” of Regulation, by New Labour was also counter intuitive to historic Labour policy, but nevertheless adopted by Tony Blair to give the public what they wanted, and to get Labour elected for three terms.

I have to disagree with historic Tory philosophy and also with Gordon Brown, since British Banks,  should never have been trusted. Never. Never. Never.

William Hague and Gordon Brown were both wrong, and William Hague  continues to be wrong, but also off the current Tory message,  by continuing to maintain the old Tory status quo.

David Cameroon, is of course a classic opportunist,  and is only wise after the event, if he were at all ever true to his word, which I am entitled to doubt, given his haircut, and his failure to wear a crash helmet when cycling, for fear of looking un-cool.

I commend William Hague at least, for declaring your position honestly, even though I disagree with you, onward to polling day, forever and on.


Should never have been trusted. Never. Never. Never.

Dear William, UPDATE.

14 April 2010

The very day after this article was published the Prime Minister confessed going too far with deregulating the bankers. I doubt that he read my article, but his confession was well received in the Monk household.

I understand Gordon Brown’s  dilemma because he certainly gave the bankers, the deregulation they wanted, and also what the Tories, including David Macoroon. wanted, for the Bankers.

Tomorrow night, the big debate may, or may not, uncover the Hippo in David Macoroon, on this very issue.

We shall see.
