First to the gun, Hopi Sen has the best reinterpretation of what looks like a dreadful piece of melodrama by the Conservatives.
And this stout organ of political impartiality finds real fault with the Conservative campaign:
So what’s the problem? Well, only the fact that Andy Burnham this morning denied the death tax claim with the words, “The Guardian story suggests a £20,000 flat levy. I’m not currently considering that as a lead option for reform.” Sure, the Health Secretary has left himself some wiggle room – he could still introduce the levy. But the fact remains that the death tax isn’t current Labour policy. It may never be. And it’s disingenuous to suggest otherwise.
Respect to the Spectator.
Now the Bank’s Inflation Report is out. I will be offline reading that monster for the foreseeable. What a glamorous life.
