Politics in a Recession

I was listening to breakfast television this morning, and two people debating who was at fault for the current economic situation (apparently it was “the other guy”), and it struck me that surely, this is exactly not what is needed at the moment.

Would it not be better if politicians of all persuasions worked together to get the country out of the huge amount of debt it is currently in, rather than finger-pointing and trying to score cheap sound-bites against each other. From what I can see, the politicians we have are more interested in using the situation for their own gain, and as a tool to get elected next year, rather than working together to sort the mess out.

Ultimately, it really does not matter whose fault it is – I am sure the public will make it quite clear during the election – what is important is working with each other to minimise the damage.
