Ah! Ed Miliband “forgot” to talk about the UK’s still gargantuan budget deficit at last week’s Labour party conference. That explains it – he forgot! Phew! For a moment, I was worried.
There was I thinking the Leader of Her Majesty’s Opposition doesn’t care about putting the UK’s public finances back on the straight and narrow. I was concerned he was deliberately ignoring our budgetary predicament, kicking the acute fiscal problems we face even further into the long grass.
