This is a con from David Cameron because despite his warm words, he does not
have the money to pay for his proposals. Today's report follows the Forsyth
Commission, which proposed GBP21 billion in tax cuts and now we have billions of
extra commitments. Once again we see a Tory party making incredible commitments based on sums that simply don't add up.
Oh change the record. How is it possible to engage in rational debate when politicians come up with fatuous knee-jerk responses like this? Burnham must know that none of the proposals in either the Forsyth report or the Duncan Smith report have been adopted by David Cameron. He has made no commitments yet, so there are no sums to add up. Not a good start to his cabinet career.
