Corbyn's Student Union economics has no place in the real world

September 29, 2015 4:07 PM

Responding to the Opposition Leader's speech, Jonathan Isaby, Chief Executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:

After the criticisms Ed Miliband faced last year, it beggars belief that Jeremy Corbyn did not see it fit to mention either the national debt or the deficit once in his Conference speech. Nor did he provide any discernible policy to tackle the problems the country faces.

All we seem to know is that Mr Corbyn would spend vast amounts of money which ultimately has to come from taxpayers. This must either come through increased taxes now, or increased taxes in the future to pay off whatever is borrowed. The government doesn't have any money of its own.

This brand of student union politics is completely out of place in the real world and would bring misery to the very people that Mr Corbyn claims he wants to help.
