    Default Government hammered!!

    Who said this?

    'We heard today the Prime Ministerial speech with no information of substance, no explanation, no justification and certainly no apology to the people of this country. So the first thing the Chancellor will have to do this evening is apologise. He should apologise to the millions of homeowners ...

    'He should apologise to the thousands in business who were told that stability was the essence of the Government's macro-economic policy...

    'Most of all, the Chancellor should apologise to the people whom the Government have made unemployed... These people were told by the Chancellor ... Now they find that both unemployment and inflation are likely to rise"

    For those who missed the point this was Gordon Brown in 1992 talking about Tory policy

    Let me guess - some leftie commentator talking about the 1979 Tory government when they laid out the difficult but very necessary mesures needed to get the country out of the hole the previous Labour governement had left us in?

    Keep it handy, you'll hear it again in around 18 months...
    Blog? What blog...?
