You were, in your usual passive aggressive way, until challenged on it when you're then unable to have any follow up views because you never got further than the headline on that particular Guardian article.
You seem to think that the point I made was endorsing a particular political viewpoint.
Labour took us from £300 bn to a little short of £1 tn The tories have added a relatively small amount to that, partly because a lot of the things being paid for can't just be stopped as labour went into long term payment deals.
Haven't they though? Or is that the point you're making?
Yes. If only those damn tories had kept increasing our debt then we would all be living in mansions made of gold now.
Labour spent their way out of the recession and they managed to get growth up quite impressively before they lost power.
I have nothing against governments spending a lot but to simply believe that more government spending = economic recovery shows an understanding of economics that a 5 year old in the 'special class' would have. Or DM.
I came in like a wrecking ball. Yeah, I just closed my eyes and swung. Left me crashing in a blazing fall. All you ever did was wreck me. Yeah, you, you wreck me.
