I read the guardian as my main news source. It's not my only news source, but as a general rule I like what it has to say. This means I read a lot of UK news, and right now get a lot of news about the UK election. A great deal of the news talks about the erosion of the public sector, and about the gap between rich and poor. The election coverage is about how Cameron said Milliband is a doody-head and Milliband said 'am not' and Cameron responded 'are too'. The UK has changed a great deal in the 20 years I've been going there, not always for the better. Surely they deserve a more serious discussion of the way forward than they are getting.
