Socialist nerve

York Press: . .

WITH reference to Mr T Scaife’s letter of November 28 attacking me for suggesting Labour’s economic policies for the future may be suspect, particularly concerning the “living wage”, it would appear I have tweaked a “socialist” nerve.

For in his reply he did not offer one practical idea as to how the money would be raised other than “raid the Treasury”. I rest my case.

The current "coalition" have increased the national debt from 700 million under the last Labour government to 1.16 trillion so I hardly think they have any room to criticise anyone. They could start by scrapping HS2 which is currently costed at 42 billion plus a hidden 7 billion for the rolling stock. That would pay the interest on the national debt for one year.

The website format is the same for dozens of publications across the country. I believe they all have to use a standard format. Whoever wrote the template has included a slot for a picture with every single story. Fine for actual news stories but I imagine it's too time-consuming to find a picture for each letter if a suitable one even exists. So I guess they've chucked in a standard "Press" one.
