Glad we’ve got that sorted out then

Labour has a choice to make. It can say it will balance the books or it can deliver political change. But it can’t do both.

The only way we can have political change is by spending money we don’t have. Further, all the money that is currently spent is done so with 100% efficiency.

That is interesting, isn’t it? We’re already in the best of all possible worlds.

  1. Spud’s doing another of his “Are Johnson’s days numbered?” projection pieces again.

    He WANTS Johnson’s days to be numbered so he conjures up fantasy scenarios in which they are and puts those forward as his analysis of the position. Kuenssberg has done something similar on the BBC.

  2. As far as I can see Boris has identified the problem with British industry and large scale retailers
    They don’t like the answer

    Tesco today crowing about the resilience of its supply chain that helped deliver a £2.5bn profit while simultaneously saying that it’s in tatters there are no HGV drivers, Christmas is cancelled and it’s al the government’s fault

    Do they even read the statements they make?

    Andrew C,

    According to the Speccie polling, including the Conservative’s internal polling, shows that there’s a majority who think Boris is a one trick pony. That’s led to mutterings that he might need to be replaced before the GE.

    Quite possibly true, but he does have definite knack of winning elections. Including twice as London mayor, in a city you’d expect to just weigh the labour votes.

    And no, I won’t be voting for the tories ever again. With Boris leading or not.

    Agreed. Shame he doesn’t favour the same approach to energy generation and distribution.

  6. And of course it exposes the truth why so much of the Establishment were opposed to Brexit : it cut off their supply of cheap labour.

    Boris has been a bitter disappointment. Traitor to The Cause, even. I am surprised that he is still there, he seemed broken this time last year.

    Tim Newman made a good point on Twitter, cheap money has become a resource curse. To which I think we can add cheap labour.

    There’s no contradiction there. Tesco may have been unable to keep everything in stock, but they may have ensured that shortages meant that there were fewer varieties of particular goods rather than whole categories being missing altogether (as was the case when there were no loo rolls or pasta when lockdowns started).
