Well - that's highly debatable. In the UK, the Labour government is only
just left of centre and some debate that it's actually more right than
left now, and I don't think anybody is under the impression that it's
actually socialist. However, there is a strong argument to suggest that
beginning of the rot began with the right-wing Conservative government
back in the Thatcher/Major era, who began the slide into increasing debt
and unrealistic mortgages.
Neither government is entirely blameless. I think blaming the current
crisis purely on a political system is a little short-sighted.
