Thought for the Day

We all know that 2011 is going to provide us with many challenges, both in our everyday lives and also on a political level.

But are we optimistic or not?

Is doom and gloom contagious? While many politicians were yesterday going to town on how much the VAT rise would hurt the economy, many ordinary people seemed to have a more balanced view of things, and sounded as if they were prepared to put up with it and work around it as best they could.

Do we feel poorer or less secure simply because economists and media force feed us with negative materials, much of which is often contradictory and simply adds to the sense of confusion?

Have you got your sense of perspective of where things are at yet in 2011, or is your head spinning a bit?

We all know how easy it is to talk a market up or down if that is what suits people who stand to gain by prophecies coming true.

Lets all be positive for 2011, and endeavor to persevere, whatever the year ahead brings. We will develop a better sense of perspective in due course about how things are likely to work out.
