Labour hate to remind us but during both the 1930s Great Depression and the 2008 world financial crisis, they made it worse for us.
In both instances unemployment reached the dizzy heights of 2.5 million.
They upped their spending, causing us to be plunged into the further debt.
Labour lack common sense. When money is hard to find, you don't up your spending, you tighten your belt, reign in, cut your spending.
Here's some advice:
When rent goes up, or you want to buy a new car or are just about to start paying off your very first mortgage. Do you:
a) cut your spending
b) up your spending
Labour seem to think the latter answer is the way forward.
