If you are pretending you can't see how the media were supporting the then government you have zero creditability. There was no real economic boom after 2001, it was a line fed to people by editorial policy in the media and government spin, and they were in it together.Again, complete BS. If you can't differentiate between support for FF and newspaper fluff pieces about the boom then you need to develop a sense of perspective. And frankly, prior to 2002 the govt deserved a lot of praise.
Prior to 2002 was probably the stupidest piece of governance ever to take place in this country. A country that was growing in real economic terms decided not to spend on infrastructure and instead used the exchequer returns to buy power.
