Gordon Brown's announcement to provide free child care for two-year-olds is just another example of slight of hand from a desperate government. For one thing this so called policy is stretched out over the next ten years. That's ten years of extra spending that Gordon Brown will have stitched a Conservative government up with. We can expect more of these generous offers to be announced in the dieing days of this Labour government.
Making these expensive promises (with our tax money) is easy for Brown, they will either help him cling to power, in which case they can be quietly dropped later, or he will be leaving the bill for Cameron to pick up. Brown will announce policies that the country cannot afford, and then he will sit back in his retirement rocker and watch David Cameron struggle to re-seed the scorched earth he inherited.
We need a General Election as soon as possible, as any delay will give Brown more chance to run up national debt.
