I have long argued that tax justice is the most pro-business economic policy going. Now it is core Labour policy. But that’s not all that’s pro-business about Labour. As the Times Red Box email put it this morning:
Labour have not learnt the lessons of the past, the Tories insist. But perhaps they have not learnt the lessons of the present.
By the time the Conservatives have finished saying "f*** business" and pursuing an ideological Brexit which many firms warn will be somewhere between inconvenient and utterly destructive, they might wake up to find that Labour has won the argument.
A decade after the crash, for which those responsible paid little price, voters might be happy to let Labour do the business.
That’s The Times saying that.
The Tories are in trouble.
