Round the bend

“Tory win best for economy say top bankers” declares the “Daily Telegraph”. Bad news for Cameron.

An endorsement from the most reviled people in the world is not calculated to set people’s minds at rest.

Meanwhile, Mr Cameron told the “Today” programme he was in favour of tolls on new roads “to begin with”.

In other words, a Conservative Government will almost certainly start imposing tolls on existing roads. It’s a nice little earner and can be explained away as good for the environment.

With petrol prices roaring ahead and the £6 gallon on the way, that’s not exactly reassuring for the millions of people for whom the car is still the only way of getting about in this country.
