    But he’s a lefty economist; they are all wrong by definition ‘cos their theories depend on the rest of the country funding the daftness of denying human nature. But it’s nice to get an appology.

      He didn’t apologise. The rest of the article after the line quoted here is an exercise in insisting he was actually right, despite being wrong. Also – Osborne, Daily Mail, yada yada yada.

    All I need now is proof that climate change is not man-made and 2014 will be complete – that’s early!

    He’s been proved wrong about everything for years.
    And yet he still gets paid a shed-load of money to
    lecture and is worshipped by the left.

Cathy Jamieson MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury minister, commenting on Treasury analysis of the economic impact of tax changes…

“If the Treasury is looking at the economic impact of tax changes, then surely it should examine the impact of the rise in VAT and cuts to tax credits? George Osborne’s £12 billion VAT rise knocked confidence, helped to choke off the recovery and has cost families £1,350 over the last three years.”
