Larry Burchall has demonstrated, through indisputable math, that while the PLP are claiming to reject austerity, that they are in fact cutting back on government spending, ie. austerity measures.
However, where Larry is not quite correct, is that this is a secret, unannounced austerity plan.
That isn't true.
The PLP are on record as being pro-austerity, as far back as January 2010 when a Cabinet memo was circulated to the Civil Service ordering 'austere cost savings'.
Yet again, reality has an anti-PLP bias.
None of this will of course stop running ads that they are against austerity and that the other side want to cut back when the truth is very, very different.
