    I'd use some common sense. I'd listen to what the people want.
    Has anyone ever noticed that when Tony Blair is asked a question, he never answers it??? He always skirts around the topic, for example:
    "Mr Blair, why is the NHS shite?"
    "Well WW, you cant just say that, some parts are good, and we are improving"
    "No they arent Mr Blair, since you've been in power it has got worse"
    "Well, the tories lef....."
    "No they didnt, it was ok when they left it."
    "Well, you have to look at it from a poorman's perspective living in Europe"

    And so on.
    If I saw a problem, I'd fix it. I would cut the red tape, tell Europe to fuck off and stop meddling in our affairs, we want to be IN europe and not Controlled by Europe. As for the police, Id give them, and the victims more power, criminals would be treated as criminals once they have been proven guilty. They wont be allowed to sue the person's house they attempted to break into e.t.c. I'd run the country by actually thinking about what could make IT better and not what would make ME look better.

    *pastes more arms onto Gabz* there u go.

    and WW, well done. now make that so everyone is happy and it is economically viable, lower taxes, keep the economy growing, keep inflation and unemployment in check and generally keep the economy in shape. dont run up a huge budget deficit and keep ur trading partners happy, keep the pound strong but not so as to discourage trade, keep Europe happy by being in it, or then agian dont be in it and lose 50% of the countries support.

    think it's easy eh? <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/tongue.gif"&gt; just showing that its more than meets the eye.

    Look into these tired eyes. See something you might recognise.

    reduce the size of government.

    privatize a lot of what bloated and snail slow government agencies fail to do.

    improve the education system.

    annex canada. it's the 51st state already, mind as well make it official. <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif"&gt;

    urbanize as much as possible. wide open spaces give me the heebie jeebies <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/tongue.gif"&gt;

    lower taxes.

    No, just the hair.

    Gotta leave the rest for comedic effect. Who else would we laugh at?

    well, for a start there's 'greasy' portillo, 'fatty two jags' prescott, 'prudence' brown, and the rest. but you're right, perhaps she should be preserved for entertainment value <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/biggrin.gif"&gt;

    If I ran YOUR country, well... I wouldn't. I don't think I could salvage it without a large occupation force and martial law. and then I'd need a whole lot of shovels.
