Re: Promises now, cuts after the election…

Of course. Brexit countdown through contraction in the economy and government revenues to the halving in real terms of those two great sacred cows, the state pension and the NHS.

But current profligate spending promises are a poison pill to hurt Labour (and libdems, if they make an electoral comeback at Westminster). Take away whatever space they might have to appear more generous, and push them to promising what everyone will know is pie-in-the-sky.
