THE RIGHT wing blogs are having a collective hissy fit this morning, and I can’t make up my mind whether it’s because they’re genuinely upset at the prospect of the government’s economic plans being successful (which we all hope for, don’t we, people?) or because they reckon a today’s announcements will bag the next election for them. If the latter, why the ostentatious outrage?
Iain Dale even repeats that old myth about Labour being responsible for the economic crisis here (“… the Government plans to spin itself out of the financial mess it has got itself into”), without explaining whether or not he blames us for it happening everywhere else in the world as well.
I shall, of course, be offering my own thoughts after the chancellor has resumed his seat this afternoon.
