Here we go.
Amazingly: Conservatives borrow more, repay less (given the sale of public assets they’re keen on) than Labour governments.
This contradicts the “labour traditionally borrow more and leave the country in debt” line that is spun by Conservatives.
The numbers are here and there’s a clear indication of where the numbers have come from.
I think this is simplistic, and there’s a lot more data to include (sale of BT, Royal Mail, BG, etc and so so) and also the possible use of price indexes to show a bit more flavour to what has been borrowed and returned by each government. BUT!
LOOK, according to this:
Conservative govts borrow more, pay back less.
Labour Governments pay back more of the money they borrow.
I bought a new amp. Well. It’s not new. It’s vintage. Look at it. All shiny and silver. With the soft blue glow.
I’ve been spending a lot of time, well not lots, I don’t have lots of time. I’ve spent at least 2 hours in two weekends listening to records with Miriam. She takes great pride in her ability to pull records from the shelf, and put them on. My inner voice screams “NO NEEDLE DROPS” and “OH MY FUCKING GOD CAN YOU HOLD IT BY THE EDGES PLEASE??”.
I generally keep it quiet.
This weekend I showed her the balance dial, the volume dial, the loudness switch, and the SUBSONIC FILTER.
Who doesn’t need a subsonic filter in their life?
First record played was this:
(video is good too)
