POLITICS: Wrecking the recovery

editorial image

Labour governments in the 1960s and 70s, and again 10 years ago, left the country in dire economic chaos.

Like it or not, it was Tory or coalition governments that had to bring financial and political stability to our country.

When Labour lost the election in 2010, an official left a note boasting that there was nothing left.

Ronnie Campbell’s column advocates a set of spending policies that would wreck the hard-won recovery of Great Britain since 2010 (News Post Leader, October 5).

The claim by Corbynistas that their economic plan is fully costed is partially true; Corbyn’s spending plans can be calculated, but the means to pay for them is not.

The Labour Party’s economic policy can best be described as ‘financial arsenic’.
