Accountancy the election loser

The heralding of a general election, strangely enough, coincides with TS’s requisite one-month-every-five-years hibernation period. But this time we thought we might try and stay awake through the bluster and boredom. After all, it looked like it the parties might fight the election on the economy and numbers, and TS loves nothing more than a bunch of numbers.

So we were more-than-slightly disappointed to hear shadow chancellor Oliver Letwin proclaim yesterday that ‘this election is not about accountancy’, after the Tories had been forced to backtrack on their pledge to cuts taxes within a month of getting into power.

Ho-hum, it looks like TS has stayed awake for no reason. Perhaps we should go and grab that sleeping bag and make a cup of Horlicks.
