It may be hard for the rest of the world to understand this, but the British are actually somehow UPSET about have 7.8% unemployment in the current economic crisis. 

There is actually some chance a more conservative government may come in, though its hard to imagine more conservative than New Labour, and bring in more "free market" policies to deal with the economy.

Somehow the British in their ever more isolated globalised island have elected to ignore, or don't care that 10.% and 9.8% in the Eurozone.  But despite coming through this current economic downturn with 2% less unemployment that the Eurozone or US that British are gloomy.

This sad gray nation is full of men forced to be rich, who all wish for nothing more than to be trolls.  In England only those born rich can enjoy being rich.  No one seems to take any pleasure in a joy unless it is floating in a sea of a million miseries.
