CBI says you can’t cut to create growth

Posted on

I note the CBI has said today  that we cannot grow on the basis of a policy of cuts.

And I note that only a week or so ago they were demanding those very same cuts.

And that they reconcile the two by demanding tax and regulatory favours for business the very thing that got us into the mess in the first place 0f course.

Two comments seem worth making. First if they are so inconsistent it’s clear that they do not know what they’re talking about. So, second, they should not be granted their wish.
