As we all know from 20th century history the conservatives will inevitably rebuild the economy and put some cash back into our very empty dusty cobwebbed national coffers however, in doing so they will have to take such radical steps that they will be hated for yet another generation and Labour with the advantage of having some cash to spend will come back into power promising to spread the wealth and dish it all out again with no regard to keeping some back for a rainy day. It strikes me that now is perhaps the time to introduce some legislation which limits the damage that the labour party(and others!) can do in the future. We cannot continue to ride the cycle of conservative/labour boom and bust, we must find a happy medium. Historically Labours spending spree every time they come to power ruins the national economy and increases the welfare state burden whilst the conservatives continually have to cut and rebuild therefore we do not have a consistent national economy such as you'd find in Germany. My big worry is Milliband, Balls, Burnham and Co in 5 years will get back into power on the back of populist issues that will inevitably lead to the wrack and ruin of the UK economy yet again - politicians should not be trusted with the allocation of funds unless there is some sort of independant review and audit process that will ensure the nations interests come first and not adopted simply for short term votes from the public.
