Is the uk Government able to govern?

It does not look good after Libya cock-up.

This is not a rant.

It is a rational question from a uk citizen of 56 yrs.

Keep it in perspective
it will soon be water under the bridge

It's not the first cock up, nor will it be the last cock up. but for real blunders, look at the French and Italian leaders recent bad publicity!

Practise makes perfect and the present lot haven't had much for a long time.

Not only that, we have a PM who believes departments can be left to ministers to run.

Would you trust someone with the nation's security
who bungles things?
I was watching Channel 4 news tonight.

This is why I posted this.

Just think what could have been said of Maggie if she had failed in the South Atlantic 30 years ago. All governments have to take some risks, but it's nowhere near as bad as Eden's Suez cock-up in the same neck of the woods in the '50s.

I don't see it as that bad.

The team also had imput to what they where doing as well. When you deal with the unknown it is better to go well prepared.

The rebels over-reacted not the team.

To settle in.
We have no choice for the moment but I would like to see David Cameron get things right with no botch-ups.

  jakimo 20:06 07 Mar 2011

Brits gave Labour 13 yrs,and they still couldn't get it right

So perhaps it would be fair to give Cameron a bit longer

  peter99co 20:23 07 Mar 2011

Labour must have really upset you!!

They upset quite a number of people so don't take it he is on his own.

I'm a bit miffed myself.

  Quickbeam 20:26 07 Mar 2011

If we're onto Labour cock-ups... WMD, say no more.
