Labour's manifesto is now live

on Tue May 16, 2017 9:43 pm
I will have a good read later (122 pages long!) - what do people think?

They say it's fully costed, but that's assuming all the business and wealth stay put, suck up the extra tax, and not bugger off to the EU

I've only skimmed through it, but it seems pretty decent. I haven't seem the Conservative one, I don't think it's been published yet?

No need for a manifesto.  Conservatives are going to coast to an easy victory. The opposition is a shambles and their manifesto's costings absolute b*ll*cks..

I'm the ultimate floating voter but this year has to be the trickiest decision ever - it boils down to who is gonna f**k it up the least.

Back on topic mind, I thought the Labour manifesto ticked many boxes for me.

Having done some costings a few analysts believe there's a £250billion black hole in the Labour budget. Considering the entire yearly gross domestic product of the UK is only ten times more than that it's quite an error. And I hope they don't want us to take out loans to cover this as our debt is about 90% of GDP as it is and will cause another recession

Yes I think your right TDA - there's a poor assumption in the manifesto that hardly anyone paying the higher tax will find legal ways to avoid doing so.

Arkay - have to say there are a lot of sweeteners in there that I absolutely love. But I just don't have any confidence that they will able to afford it. I wish they have scaled the ambition back on renationaliseling the national grid and water- also tuition fees, maybe more realistic to subsidise most degrees and offer free tuition for key subjects.

Finally, Corbyn's team fills me with no confidence at all - especially poor hapless Diane Abbot.

Diane Abbot believing that 10,000 extra police officers only cost £300,000 per year was incredible, particularly as the actual figure is approximately £300,000,000. Maybe she should have put her glasses on?!
