Iain Dale Praises the Economy Under Labour

(Iain Dale)
Yes I know, made my jaw drop as well! but this is what he said on his blog this morning:


"No, most people who don't vote tend to take the 'plague on all your houses' approach and are a very difficult group to entice back into the polling booth. It's even more difficult when there is relative economic stability. "


Now you can't give the credit to the Tories on this one, they have been out of power for ten years. So who else but Gordon is responsible for this! Could it be that in a Post-Blair Labour administration we shall see Iain change sides? ;)

Given that Labour continued to blame the Conservatives for problems in their ministries for years after 1997 perhaps you should give the Conservatives a little credit for this current economic upturn. Can't build a house without foundations, after all!

Paul Burgin said...

But a sign surely that, if this was originally due to the Conservatives! All credit to Labour for sustaining the economy for a decade and not leading us into boom and bust, unlike other administrations I can think of!

If the Conservatives had won in 1997 then maybe they would have led the economy into another boom and bust cycle, but they didn't win, Labour did and inherited what was up till then a Tory success - well done Labour and well done Conservatives!

Dunadan, coalilitionist to the last ;), Iain this is politics where strange things happen ;)

Strange things happen. Sure but I tend to use another word beginning with S, especially if the tories are involved somehow.

(so it does only take three comments to go from bipartisanism to swearing about the other party)

By the way Paul, I've sorted out some Benn4Deputy Badges if your interested.
