BBC News - Nigel Farage: UKIP to be serious players at general election
Labour Party gaining ground .... but will it be enough (traction) to replace the coalition of Conservatives/LibDems? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/events/vote2014 - waiting for further detailed analysis; http://www.economist.com/blogs/blighty/2014/05/local-elections "Most revealingly for the party’s long-term prospects, UKIP’s triumph in local elections is proof of its growing knack for campaigning on-the-ground and on domestic political issues. For years the party’s success was limited to European elections, where bluster about the EU and a strong broadcast presence was enough. Not any more. The party’s membership has shot up to more than 35,000, meaning it can now seriously compete in first-past-the-post contests." + http://www.economist.com/blogs/blighty/2014/05/shape-britain "LOSING America is popularly considered to have been one of the things that cost King George III his sanity. David Cameron, by contrast, appears to think that losing Scotland would not even cost him his job."

Economic policy: Paved with good intentions | The Economist
Although the debate [austerity] relates to the UK, I think it has a much wider resonance. And indeed, to a student of history, it has fascinating parallels; economic policy-making was rethought in the mid-1970s, but the same debates are popping up again. [...] Margaret Thatcher on ZIRP & QE "Let us print the money instead. Because what that is saying is let us quietly steal a cerain amount from every pound saved in building societies, in national savings, from every person who has been thrifty." [...] [ZIRP & QE is no free lunch - it has consequences, known and unknown, unintended.]
