Firstly, a cracker:
“However, like all achievements in politics, our successes need to be defended from those with other priorities. David Cameron spoke over the weekend about "an age of austerity". But we need to ask - austerity for who?
While our party offers a £145 tax cut for 22 million basic rate taxpayers, the Tories talk of putting "some taxes up" and prioritising a multi-million pound inheritance tax cut for the wealthiest few.
My second post relates to LDV falling into administration.
I'm glad I was not the only one who thought along these lines: http://www.labourlist.org/alan-giles-ldv-labour-losing-heart-labourlist?utm_source=taomail&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=802+Communication%2C+Thu+30th+Apr+2009&tmtid=11331-802-6-1-2089.
I'll give away my far left roots by admitting that the first thought that came to my mind was a worker take over, ideally backed by the Govt if money was otherwise unavailable.
Failing that, then the Government should step in to take over the otherwise failing business and provide it with the orders of environmentally friendly vehicles to really show that not only is the environment fluffy and lovely, it's also the source of jobs for the future. To pass this opportunity by is a real shame
