The shadow chancellor went on: "The age of irresponsibility - who would have thought that the epitaph of the Brown years would be provided by the man himself?"..."He says he's the candidate of experience. Well, I think we've all had enough of the Gordon Brown experience."
"We meet at a time of national anxiety, in the eye of a financial storm. Our economy is suffering a crisis of confidence and our government is also suffering a crisis of confidence."
All in all the right [pardon the pun] tone with a good, confident message. Interesting that NL had chimed in with a rebuttal of the cost re council tax freeze BEFORE the speech was finished! Overall it was well received: I hope the press reaction is fair: anyone interested in any other Conservative Party policies etc can see it on their excellent new website: policy page HERE:
"The cupboard is bare. There is no more money. Tax revenues have collapsed. Unemployment costs are rising. Borrowing is out of control. Labour has done it again,"
