I watched the Tory Party hustings on Channel 4 last night. I am not going to offer much comment. Instead I will simply note that time after time the candidates made spending promises but gave no hint as to how they were going to necessarily reclaim the money that they would spend from the economy to prevent inflation arising - which at the level they were promising without tax rises it undoubtedly would. That lack of reality was overwhelming.
Without exceptions these candidates were all in cloud-cuckoo land. No wonder people are fed up with politics and politicians.
