What George Osborne has done to the economy is the worst policy mistake for a century. It’s as bad as that. A disaster.
“the worst policy mistake for a century”??? Are you sure? What about yours and Gordon’s nearly successful attempt to bankrupt the UK?
Blanchflower is used to being wrong. Happily, the Mirror has a few enlightened readers who have already commented on Dave’s sermon:
Ahhh the well known leftie and Labour supporting Blanchflower says Osborne has got it wrong. Now that is the revelation of the day.

If you have a look above there is no idea what he thinks we should be doing. But one can guess it will include borrowing more money that we do not have to fund schemes that few want
Come on Mirror even you can do better. Next you will drag out the other leftie Krugman
This post is not an attempt to praise Osborne, but one of many to re-emphasise just how catastrophically destructive his predecessors were, and to note the predictable irony (see also Sean Connery/Scotland) that the wealthy Blanchflower doesn’t even live here. Of course he doesn’t.
