Clarke for Chancellor

Clarke Carlisle made news on Thursday by becoming the first footballer on Question Time. He has ten GCSEs and answered his questions well. He reinforced his credentials as a clever player when he told the audience that he voted for the Liberal Democrats. It seems so obvious that Liberal Democrats told the electorate that cuts had to be made and presented the way cuts had to be made.

Cuts are never popular but Clarke was impressed with political honesty. Compare his views with Alan Johnson in my blog on the 9th January. He couldn't remember what was said before the election, made up his own version and made headlines on the news. By his own admission he wasn't very good at economics but left the post of Chancellor for personal reasons. Then he gets the plaudits for being a great politician. I was thinking Clarke would have made a better chancellor.

Change the world
