Neoliberal Nic pushing the RBS line.

My view is that the six tests – that we have a functioning and credible Central Bank, that our fiscal position is sufficiently strong, that we have a sufficiency of reserves to manage our currency, and that a new currency would meet the needs of citizens and businesses and the economy overall – are reasonable.

 

The SNP have created a policy position which they hope will trick voters into thinking that they are pro an independent currency while the banks know the truth that they aren't.

Its a good job that we have parties like Labour who are not self serving and there for the good of the general public  - they can call the SNP out on things like this......

At least you recognise that Labour are there for the good of the country.

This would make sense if the banks were relevant. But they aren't.

As @NotThePars beautifully put it : "What do we want? Mild reform! When do we want it? In the future!"

Labour are aiming to end austerity.

The SNP plans mean permanent austerity.

That's not really a good description of the 2017 Labour manifesto.

It's a great description of the PLP though.

Aside from the fact that Darling didn't cut spending as Chancellor do you realise it is 2019?

"We are going to reform the Lords" (honest this time)

"We are going to end austerity" (abstain abstain abstain)

"we are going to get rid of nuclear weapons" (lets all vote for new ones)

"We will nationalise everything" (Yip same as the last time)

Been there heard it

Now away and waffle about big business or some other shite

The Growth Commision plan does mean permanent austerity.

We are already in a state of austerity and following the GC policy will require further spending cuts. The 6 tests will never be met as they are currently constituted. It would leave us in a position where we have no control over our interest rate, no ability to use QE and completely beholden to credit markets who would set a high cost of borrowing whilst demanding ever more neoliberal reforms.

A country without control over it's currency is not an independent country.
