Mr. T's pearl of wisdom

My prediction for 2010 is in line with what Mr. T stated in Rocky III regarding his fight with Rocky Balboa: "pain". In turbulent times, Mr. T offers comforting honesty.

The third year of the (Second) Great Depression - the Year of Our Lord 2010-, will feel like receiving a credit card bill we had forgotten about. Instead of tackling the economic problems like the Irish have done, the Labour Government has simply asked for an overdraft.

In 2010 we will realise at last that the Government simply cannot bail out every failed business and every greedy borrower who took on a 125 per cent mortgage from Northern Rock. Like every addiction, the addiction to Government will not be easy to beat but beat it we must. If we understand that freedom retreads when the Government expands, we will be able to build a better future for our children. If not, the only thing we will leave them will be a trillion-pound bill for our stupidity and a country on the road to serfdom.

Mr. T's "pain" might sound tough. But the longer we delay it, the more it will hurt.
