This is by far the best comparison of alternative policies that I have read so far.
What alarms me though is the overwhelming absence of strategy, detailed costings and risk analysis. May still looks set to win the election but the consequences of her policies will be felt for generations.
As a passionate believer in individualism with effective social nets, I believe that the Conservative Party Manifesto 2017 has lost its way, without an overarching strategy, just different flavours of jam for UKIP and Labour supporters. It’s a sham.
