LibDem Spokeswoman Commits to Spending £15 Billion
Jo Swinson is one of the twenty something women who Ming has appointed to his Shadow team, as Scottish Spokesman. She's on the Daily Politics today and has landed herself in a little bit of trouble. As a member of the Ming team she has just committed the LibDems to compensate pensioners who have lost out on pensions misselling to the tune of £15 billion. She says the Contingency Fund should be used to compensate pensioners. I wonder what her colleague Julia Goldsworthy, the other twenty something woman in the Ming team, who is in control of LibDem public spending plans, will make of this? Assuming, of course, she knows how many zeros there are £15 billion (see below).
