“Literally we would not know what we were voting for if we were going to vote for Labour.” That from Paul Johnson of the IFS. Our thoughts exactly. Labour won’t admit to the desire for tax and spend.
The City AM verdict sounds about right. “The IFS says the plans would leave Labour making between £18bn worth of cuts or none at all. The electorate may question Labour’s Damascene conversion to fiscal prudence if they leave the door open to making no cuts in public spending.”
