    I just though this might be interesting to see what people think.

    Personally, I believe that history shows us that Labour's economic policies are shocking. To paraphrase Clinton, 'it's the economy, stupid', and in the current political climate this is truer than ever. Let's see what TSR thinks!

    Conservative governments followed 1940s Labour economic policies for decades after the end of the war.

    Thatcher's government caused the early 1990s recession due to mismanagement and incompetence. The 1970s IMF bailout notwithstanding (which happened under a Labour government) I think it's about even. Both parties have had economic ****-ups.
