“Investment” not waste

Text settings

Another Brown-style trick.  Darling's just waxing lyrical about the "record levels of investment" in public services.  Never mind that we haven't seen commensurate improvements in those services.  Never mind all the waste.  Like his boss, he's also now talking about public service reform - "spending must be matched by reform" - shame they haven't done that for the past decade.
