If he were wholeheartedly aiming to capture angry Labour voters with nowhere else to go, then his flags would be redder and there would be no boasting of savage cuts. He would be storming Labour citadels and summoning angry Labour voters to his cause. His flag would be an economic policy that didn\’t parrot the dangerous current group-think that declares debt must be paid down fast and furiously by whatever next government.
Apparently, because Labour is going down the tubes because it has been spending the money like a drunken sailor on shore leave, the Lib Dems should promise to spend the money like two drunken sailors on shore leave.
That\’ll win them the election, oh yes it will!
