Its just a lurch to the right...

Fantastic piece by Cruella on the Tories going lap dancing, the photo from the Daily Mail is particularly enlightening! As the economy crumbles, we will know where to find the Tories...

Meanhile, the LibDems seem to be trying to position themselves to the right of the LibDems with their latest tax promises. Their new health tax will give tax breaks to the rich while punishing the poor - regressive taxation. They reiterated their support for PFI yesterday too!

Vince Cable, the oil man, seems to be pushing their tax plans which are clear attempts to win votes at the expense of policy substance.

That's interesting, because the Lib Dems in Lewisham proposed a motion to Full Council a couple of months back condemning PFI as one of the driving forces behind the cuts proposed under the Picture of Health review! Naturally, we supported the motion, but perhaps they wouldn't be proposing the same one two months down the line?!
