Labour must show it could cut the deficit and drive growth and the ...
The Tories have a clear plan for their austerity programme which is to discredit Labour’s economic record, blame the situation they inherited from Labour for all the cuts they will make and suggest that anyone who doesn’t support their programme has no worthwhile economic proposition at all.   It is a plan which should be challenged at each point.  But it would also be a mistake to suggest that anyone on the centre left who wanted to address the issue of the deficit was somehow endorsing the Tory plan.  That isn’t true and would appear to suggest that there was no worthwhile difference between the plans on which Labour and the ... market research, surveys and trends

The country – "UK plc" – will remember the source of its original prosperity and turn again to making things. The Foreign Office's first duty will be to push British exports at embassy parties: "Look at these hi-tech cocktail sticks, Mr Wu – made in Birmingham!" Higher-minded foreign policy – occupations of other countries and so forth – was probably never a good idea in the first place and is now unaffordable. Let it go hang. Is this a fanciful dream – Britain as a ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
