Evan Davis was speaking today to the amiable old fellow Michael Heseltine….the Coalition must have a death wish asking him to review their economic policies….
Davis has his own views on those policies….believing there are no policies at all, the Treasury, George Osborne that is, has given up governing and has surrendered the initiative by collapsing into a ‘defeatist apathetic’ huddle that has lost all hope of finding a way to stimulate growth.
This is the same Davis who tells us frequently that the ‘medicine is killing the patient’….the medicine being Plan A for Austerity.
Impartiality in their DNA? Pull the other one.
Another Davis word of wisdom came when his tongue slipped and the truth came out about Vince Cable’s letter to Cameron concerning growth and policy…Davis was telling us about this letter that Vince Cable leaked….er no, quick retraction by Davis…that Cable wrote and was then leaked (not stolen or hacked…not a political crime?).
We all know Cable is a scheming, devious, untrustworthy politician who would dig up his grand mother and sell her if it got him higher up the greasy pole of government.
Just a shame the BBC continue to put him on a plinth and hero worship him….. on the basis of his duplicitous behaviour in accepting a major position in government and then working continuosly to undermine that government.
