Outside the marginals

a commentary on the politics that followed the UK 2010 & 2015 elections

Here we go again.

Cameron tells us that the red light on the dashboard is flashing warning that we are about to go into another global recession.

writing in the [Guardian], Mr Cameron said “red warning lights are once again flashing on the dashboard of the global economy” – six years on from the crash that “brought the world to its knees”.
BBC News Website 17 November 2014 : Global economy warning lights are flashing, says PM

So who is to blame? The voters of Rochester deserve to know before Thursday.

Last time the world tipped into recession it was, in the PM’s words, all Labour’s fault – as he has kept telling us for the last four years.

This time when the world tips into recession presumably it must be the Conservatives’ fault?

Unfair? I don’t think so. Sauce for the goose etc.

Indeed it should be the Conservatives’ fault; they have had both hindsight and 4 years to make our economy more resilient – and they have failed to do so. We are still just as vulnerable to another downturn. Some would argue that they now feel even more personally vulnerable.

All the Conservatives are doing about our resilience to the forces of globalisation is giving up our sovereignty to the USA through TTIP. Voters of Rochester take note – it’s not the EU that is the threat to our sovereignty it is the USA!
