Public spending is to rise 10% in cash terms over 5 years:
2009-10 (Last Labour year) £669bn
2014-15 £737bn (£68bn or 10% above Labour level)
Who’d a thunk it? Conservatives. Cuts. Jam & Bread. Salt & Pepper. Laurel and Hardie.
Yet Thatcher increased spending continually throughout her Premiership. As will Cameron and Osborne. But myth rules the media.
