The Scorched Earth policy has begun. The FT has a hugely significant story – that the Treasury is “working privately on plans to reform Gordon Brown’s fiscal rules” which would “initially allow for increased borrowing”. In the vernacular, Brown has realised that if the Tories win the next election the he is now spending with Cameron’s Gold Card – every by-election bribe, every union sellout will be funded by borrowing with the bill sent to D. Cameron Esq. Cameron will have to tax us to pay for what Brown is today spending.There's an easy solution.
The Tories should wait until Brown calls the next general election and then not put up any candidates. Labour would romp home and bear full responsibility for the coming crash. After all, ZaNuLab itself introduced this very tactic at Haltemprice and Howden, did it not?
