Miliband Steals Reagan’s Words, He Won’t Match His Deeds

Labour have pre-briefed out that Ed Miliband will channel Ronald Reagan’s “are you better off than you were four years ago?” question to the American people in 1980. Guido doubts Ed’s conference speech will go on to repeat the sentiments in the rest of Reagan’s speech:

“We cut the increased cost of government in half over eight years. We returned $5.7 billion in tax rebates, credits and cuts. We fell below the national average in inflation when we did that. And I know that we did give back authority and autonomy to the people. I would like to lead a crusade to the take government off the backs of the great people of this country.”

Ed won’t end the “Shameless” welfare dependency culture, get the government off our backs, cut taxes, inflation or unemployment. It is a fact that no Labour government has ever left office with unemployment lower than when it started. Already the unemployment rate is lower now than when Gordon Brown was kicked out of office by the voters.  Ed’s speechwriters might cut ‘n paste the best lines, he won’t copy the policies that went with ’em, he’s no Ronald Reagan…
