I agree with Nick….
I was surprised to find myself in agreement with Nick, when I heard him on the radio this morning.
In essence, he was making the case for a Tory U-turn, an end to austerity and starting to invest in infrastructure and public services.
When the Tories and Lib Dems took over from the last Labour government, the deficit was running at 10% of our gross domestic product (the value of all the goods and services we produce).
Nick was saying that we should now drop the austerity policies in favour of stimulating the economy.
I think you need to create a virtuous cycle, rather than a cycle of decline.
Either the Tory government has to wake up and understand that a change of direction is needed, or we need a new government with more enlightened policies.
