It's The Great Revival From The Great Recession!

Recommended Posts

The Great Recession has given way to a Great Revival, which is creating on average 1,000 new jobs every day: more than the rest of the European Union combined. This is no accident. It is the product of hard work by people in every part of the country and it is thanks to the success of our long-term economic plan. By halving the deficit, we have helped to restore confidence to the economy. By maintaining fiscal discipline, we have helped keep mortgage rates lower than they otherwise would be. And by establishing the independent Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR), we have ended – permanently – the ability of politicians to cook the books for political gain at the nation’s expense.

It appears we are now living in the Great Revival according to the Tory manifesto. Hilarious!

We will finish the job we started in a balanced way. Those with the broadest shoulders have contributed the most to deficit reduction – which is why inequality has fallen, and child and pensioner poverty are down – and they will continue to do so.

There's this too. Has inequality fallen in the UK?

IF that's true then most of them seem to be clogging up the local supermarket car parks washing cars in competition with the supermarkets' automatic car washes.

Backwards Britain some would call it.

How is running a £80 BILLION + deficit 'maintaining fiscal discipline'?

....or £500Bn borrowing in 5 years.

It's easy to lie when the MSM and opposition seem to all have caved into the idea the UK must borrow £100Bn a year to keep the "revival" going.

Mind you the Conservative manifesto seems to be very glossy and some people think that at least for company brochures the glossier the brochure the closer they are to bankruptcy.

The Con manifesto claims they are building more new homes than at any time since 2007.

It's really rich - they build just a few more new homes in the last year of the parliament compared to their previous 4 years and the last couple of NuLabour years and then make the exaggerated claim as if they are tops in new home building.

Typical LibLabCon.

Oceania had always been at war with Eastasia...


The way they're spinning the 'recovery' really is laughable...I was in a business meeting today and two people were agreeing about how good it was the recession was now over... :rolleyes:

Seeing as there's likely to be a coalition it would have been good if the various parties had listed which policies in the event of a coalition were sancosanct and which policies they were maybe more flexible on if/when they had to negotiate. Rather than virtually every policy being available for reneging on in coalition - not that they wouldn't renege on their policies even with a working majority.

Too much to ask of course.
