It’s good to see it said

I have said things like this for a long time:

You can’t cut your way to prosperity, you have to build it: investing in modern infrastructure, investing in people and their skills, harnessing innovative ideas and new ways of working to tackle climate change to protect our environment and our future.

Our job is to show that the economy and our society can be made to work for everyone. That means ensuring we stand up against injustice wherever we find it and we fight for a fairer and more democratic future that meets the needs of all.

Today that comes from an article by Jeremy Corbyn in the Observer. The core of what I have argued is now at the core of the national debate that will develop over coming years. I am, of course, pleased about that.

Fleshing out the case and then winning the argument is next on the agenda.
