having had the (dis)pleasure of

having to work with the hopeless blaggers who are CfH for a couple of years, I would loose the 0 off that 80.

Whilst Neu-Labour didn't cause the global financial problems, more prudent (ah the irony) Government saving during the good times would have buffered the effects. Having said that the previous Tory government were no better. No north sea oil sov fund for us.

And high end brain-drain in the public sector? Not likely from my experience.
