Scrapping Tuition Fees - correcting a historical wrong that the Fib Dems helped to shepherd through, despite promising not to
Nationalise Water Industries - cost neutral
Increase Income Tax - for only the very top earners
More Free Childcare - to enable more people (particularly women) to return to work
10,000 new Police Officers - replacing the savage Tory cuts that even Hunt has admitted went too far
3,000 new Firefighters - see above
Reverse Privatisation of Royal Mail - it was a scam in the first place, and sold for way below the actual value

but they are manifesto stuff, there don't seem to be many actual policy details

so TAX and SPEND

Entirely idealogical, uncosted, all ready to empty the coffers again.


All of those things were manifesto commitments, and that manifesto has been independently adjudged to have been properly costed; and polling suggests that the majority of the public are supportive of the big ticket items, particularly renationalising the essential services that are now run primarily to enrich share holders.

It's got absolutely nothing to do with the politics of envy - and everything to do with the politics of fairness; unfettered capitalism is a failure - we need something new.

Aye, the pervading smell of rotting fish that was latterly MGarbutt returns. Same Mail/Sun headlines, still not a shred of credible evidence to support his bile.

And now BoJo says he's prepared to increase public spending. I'm sure the Daily Mailers will be outraged.

Four months to go, although only 3 months and 1 week after the new leader of the Conservatives is chosen.

Not much of a much clearer idea of the final plan than on June 24, 2016.

Has any country ever focused so hard and for so long on one thing without even being able come up with a plan?

It does make you smile when Boris (and Hunt) are promising so much, without the budgetary back up and still having the same 650 MP to try and manipulate to pass their version of Brexit and both of them actually think that they can negotiate something new by the end of October.
