Deficit

“Because no one is talking about the exchange rate, we are in danger of locking ourselves into entirely pointless and unnecessary austerity”

‘There is a much better way of reducing the deficit than austerity: get the economy to grow’

‘Britain’s national debt, which was under control in the 15 years to 2008, is likely to peak at above 100 per cent of national income by 2014 or 2015’

This election will go down as a dishonest campaign: none of the parties came clean with the voters about the economy
