Comparing Labour's economic stats to the Coalition record
I have recently been putting together the first edition of Parliamentary Campaigner for 2015. This is the newsletter/campaign manual for Lib Dem Parliamentary candidates. I've been the editor of it for 11 years. I included in the forthcoming edition a copy of the above table.
It is up-to-date as of this morning when the latest unemployment figures were produced. Yet another fall in unemployment means we have half a million fewer people out of work than in May 2010 when Labour left office. The other figures speak for themselves.
I am reminded of the Labour Councillor in Gateshead who, 2 or 3 years ago, claimed that Labour had left a "golden legacy" for the Coalition. The real world statistics suggest otherwise.
