The General Election Dividing Line : Truth & Dishonesty

The Tories have accepted Gordon’s dividing lines on cuts versus spending.  Gordon seemed to think that he could then just shout “Tory Cuts” and that would be it, 1997 all over again.  Only problem being that the economy is in such bad shape there will inevitably be “Labour Cuts”.  The Treasury knows it, the Chancellor knows it, Yvette Cooper knows it, Peter Mandelson knows it, the City knows it, the media knows it and the voters understand that it is necessary. Only Gordon thinks his delusional dividing line is plausible. This is why this attack video from the Tories hits the spot (though it goes on a bit too long):


Cameron at PMQs keeps on going at Brown’s credibility. It will succeed as a line of attack because it is true. Brown can’t help himself when it comes to fiddling statistics.  The whole success of his chancellorship was based on massaging the numbers…

UPDATE : Politicshome polled 100 Westminster insiders and found that 74% thought that “‘the central ideas that make up Gordon Brown’s policy, political strategy and day-to-day tactics were all developed between 1992 and 1994. He hasn’t had an important idea since.”  Which explains why he thinks the “Tory Cuts” line might still work…
