•I attended the Expo -- Working Abroad exhibition over the weekend and for the first time the huge size of our problems struck home. How quickly we moved from "new government, new hope" to "no government, no hope".

Here was the youth of the nation queuing up in droves, not for a handout as the ideologues consistently accuse them of, but to emigrate in pursuit of an opportunity to work. And this was happening not a stone's throw away from the seat of power.

Did any government member, and particularly from the Labour Party, bother to go to this exhibition to see for themselves the extent of the disaster that is unfolding?
