Quote of the day 3rd June 2023

"Labour's unfunded spending pledges add up to more than £20bn a year, @theipaper analysis suggests - equivalent of a 3p rise in income tax.

And IFS's Paul Johnson casts doubt on the party's ability to meet capital spending promises without pushing up debt. inews.co.uk/news/politics/"

Hugo Gye (@HugoGye) on Twitter. The tweet was accompanied by this graphic illustrating the breakdown of those pledges.

One of the Labour supporters who I follow (I do pay attention to the views of people who don't necessarily agree with me) commented
"Can't believe that after 13 years of Opposition Labour think the biggest priority is blowing £28 billion on 'green plans' where we've no idea what the return on capital spend will be. "
Quite.
