Day 3029: Mr Oboe's Spending Pledge

Friday (again):

September 2007, just a week before that run on the Northern Rock-and-a-Hard-Place Bank (so "I didn't see it coming" NOT an excuse!), Conservatory Shadow Chancellor, Mr Gideon Oboe, plays his "this proves we've really changed card" with a promise to match Hard Labour's spending plans.

Today he plays his "ACTUALLY we haven't changed AT ALL" card and promises HUGE SPENDING CUTS that will completely implode the economy, just like they did the last two times the Conservatories tried to solve a recession by cutting spending.

So that pledge of eighteen months ago: a LIE or just TOTALLY STUPID?
