‘As statisticians confirm that the world’s 85 richest people now own roughly the same as the poorest 3.5 billion, Ed Balls gives a speech saying that Labour will be pro-business, and thus very unlikely to panic the markets once elected. It’s good to know that in a world chasing the neoliberal goal with scant regard for even the simplest, mathematical economic logic, the Shadow Chancellor is on the case bigtime. Which of course he would be, having taken part of his degree in needlework at Harvard. You know Harvard – the place where they teach folks to draw two axes and then use the four spaces thus created to explain everything….up to but not including the obvious.’
So then: who’s in the frame for this one? The Labour Party? Or every idiot neoliberal on the planet?
