If there is a temporary shortage of the people’s money, because of the exploits of the banks, exploits of which we could not be expected to have been aware, we have to unlock some of the money that the people will have tomorrow so that it can be spent today on making up the temporary shortfall. Thus maintaining spending on the people’s priorities. Remember, if the people don’t have money today how are they going to create the money tomorrow from which we’ve borrowed to pay for the people’s priorities today?”

Iain Martin has a wonderful piece of satire about Ed 'con of Brown' Miliband, Ed 'second choice' Balls and Yvette 'has to listen to him go on and on and on and on, but at least he managed to get around to marry me' Cooper...

I rather liked this, which came from the editorial in the Irish Independent

"Words like investment, profit, trade, ambition and enterprise must not be taboo in the politicians' vocabulary. They indicate an understanding of a healthy economy. The government cannot create jobs, it can merely provide employment at the taxpayer's expense."
