PC4 - Economy
#11
While this government brags of "amazing growth," we must recall what's actually going on. We now have over two million unemployed people, a loss in GDP growth, and social welfare programs that have been brutally cut by the Tories. And in the midst of all this, our new Government is run by privatizers and profiteers that even still can't remain on the same page. If this level of division occurs through a terrorism bill, I dread to see what could happen with the Budget.

In the midst of all this, Labour stands united. We all know that to overcome this Tory economy, there must be an agenda of strategic investments, supporting the neediest in our society, and ensuring that everyone is able to live a good life.

A narrow Labour win that really could have been more of a slam dunk, had it not been for decent statements from the Chancellor. There was a nice duo of Labour's left and Labour's right uniting on something they can both agree on - Thatcherism has been bad to the economy and deserves better.

The Chancellor's defence was decent, as was the breadth of his backup from his own party. The "tinkering" comment didn't quite land well with unemployment surging, however, and people wanting to see a much more decisive tone.
