Burnham Pledges More Spending, Forgets the Deficit

Andy Burnham this morning reveals his supposedly “credible vision for Labour”, a list of Corbynite crowd-pleasers like scrapping tuition fees and re-nationalising the railways (or not). Yet there was one word missing from his new pledge card: “Deficit.”

Surely his more detailed five point plan couldn’t possibly miss it out? He has spent the morning calling himself the “credible” candidate, you can’t really be credible by only making pledges to increase spending. Alas, the deficit is nowhere to be seen…

He’s just a scouse Ed Miliband
