From this morning's Guardian, by George Osborne:
Where we can all agree is that these are difficult times for family incomes. There are two root causes. One is global: rises in food and commodity prices. The other is specific to the UK: the unwinding, through a 25% currency depreciation and an unavoidable fiscal consolidation, of economic imbalances built up under Labour.
No mention of bankls?
Or regulation - which he demanded be relaxed?
Or of over selling of mortgages - which he demanded be freed from all constraints?
And no mention of the failure of the market?
Or the opacity of financial commodities that made failure inevitable?
I give him full marks for audacity.
And the same for the telling of untruths.
