More spending - yes, and it is badly needed to stop our public services from crumbling completely.
More tax - yes, but mainly for larger businesses. Higher earners pay a little bit more income tax. They can afford to give a few quid more. I pay corporation tax as a smaller business, and I don't mind paying my way.
More borrowing - yes, and it makes perfect sense with interest rates so low and anaemic economic growth for the past 7 years.
It's tried and tested economic theory. Unlike austerity, which has completely failed (if you take the given justification at face value, at least).
It beggars belief that the Tories can criticise Labour for borrowing when the national debt has soared to £1.7 trillion on their watch, and they have created more new debt than every other Labour government in history combined. And what do we have to show for it as a nation? Lower living standards, more poverty, more homelessness, more inequality.
