Vince Cable – “Keynes would be on our side”

Exclusive: Vince Cable – “Keynes would be on our side”

That is the headline in the New Statesman in which Vince argues the case

"The outgoing Labour government was already planning a fiscal tightening of 1.5 per cent of GDP in 2010/2011," he writes. "The difference between its deficit reduction plan beyond 2010/2011 and that of the coalition amounts to roughly half a per cent of GDP per annum: well within the forecasting error


We will return to this issue again shortly.One of the great concerns that many Liberals have is that some in the party(including LDV contributors) have swallowed Tory economic policy-analysis and prescription-whole. We need to be explaining in much more detail how a majority Liberal Dem government would differ from Osborne.

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
