BBC: Growth is UK's 'national mission', chancellor to say in first speech

Basically this:
Labour is not going to deliver
Quote from: Richard Murphy
Labour is planning to base all its policies on growth and wealth creation. Neither makes sense, and they're in direct conflict with each other economically. It's as if they have announced in advance that they plan to fail.

Of course they're going to emphasise growth, because a) that's what governments tend to do, b) they don't know any other mantra and c) it's what the markets like to hear.

I think there will be little changes here and there, but it's hard to imagine anything positively transformative, and not just because we can't afford it. Starmer & co. don't have any integrity, or the desire to truly attack the root causes of our woes. They're just something different, yet more of the same, going back to Thatcher and of course Blair. They aren't the adults in the room that we need.
