Labour’s not going to tip us over any edge

This is from the Times:

If you want the OECD data this is it:

Labour is going to put us slightly up the rankings.

But remember, because it will also be significantly increasing GDP (which is the inevitable consequence of this level of spending) The Times may be overstating the extent of the increase.

Why's this worth noting? Simply to point out that there is nothing unusual about what Labour is proposing. It's just about doing what decent states do on behalf of their populations.
