Labour’s pledge to the nation

Posted by davidburbage on April 12, 2010

Secure the recovery by supporting the economy now, and more than halve the deficit by 2014 through economic growth, fair taxes and cuts to lower priority spending.

so let me get this straight – Labour, currently borrowing £170 billion pounds a year (that’s £500,000,000 every day) plans not only to go on borrowing, but only to “more than halve” – let’s call it £70 billion – the “deficit” by 2014.

That isn’t actually cutting the debt, it’s merely planning to increase it at a less accelerated pace.

We’ve maxed out the credit card, but we will max it out some more in the future, just not as quickly as we’ve already done it. It’s amazing how they think creating expensive debt for the UK is the best way of governing the country. Scary even.

At an apparent £1.5 trillion debt by 2014, that’s £25,000 per man woman and child in the country.

Not sustainable. Not a plan. Thanks go to Labour politicians.
