Connected in a way to the Union rumblings I mentioned earlier. Exhibit A, March 31st: Labour's plans to increase national insurance next year will have an impact on jobs. Exhibit B, April 5th: Nat Insurance rise "will not cost jobs". Opposing opinions indeed...but they're both from Alistair Darling. Gordy must have slapped him for not lying last week.
"Brown's election deceit: asking the public to look at the advantages of the borrowing, and not contemplate the flip side to the debt coin". Nelson Fraser asks if Labour is really saying (but not saying) that more unemployment is a price worth paying?
