Politics is exciting again, innit?

We now own RBS.

I wonder if we'll do a good job of it? And if we do, how far will it change the political landscape?

You know what? Over the past couple of years I've been having little swipes at 'kremlinologists' and going on about how politics is just boring these days. But it's not now, is it?

Even though it's presage has been a financial catastrophe that will have a real impact upon a great many people, in the long run, it may be a time for fantastic optimism as well?

Joined the club yet?

Erm. Ken Livingstone doesn't share your delight. Apparently the govt lost £2.6bn just buying those shares and, at one point, was £3.2bn down.
