BBC Radio Kent
8th November 2019
On BBC Radio Kent this morning, I made it clear that there is a difference between affordability and simply borrowing billions of pounds.
The Conservatives have put the country in a position where we have a strong economy, where we have the money and capacity, without borrowing up to the hilt, to invest in our infrastructure to move this country forward, post Brexit.
The Labour Party have no real costed program, no way of working out where this money is going to come from. They are just going to borrow, borrow and borrow. That is exactly what the last Labour government did and Mr McDonnell has no idea how he is going to pay for all of the Labour Party's proposed borrowing.
