“The speed and the extent of deficit reduction should be decided on how the economy was performing not political sound bites and dogma. The time to start cutting the budget deficit and its speed must be decided by a series of objective tests which include the rate of recovery, the level of unemployment, the availability of credit to businesses and the government’s ability to borrow in international markets on good terms”
(Vince Cable, 11 January 2010)
The Lib Dems have totally flipped their position on the economy. How can they be trusted? If god forbid they were ever elected as a Government on their own accord, we would not have a clue which policies they would implement.
