I am guessing that Taylor didn't notice that Kerry tried the same trick and it didn't go well. Slag off your opponent's handling of the economy right before good results come out...very clever.


Hmm. Expert political judgement, as always.


But Oliver, surely you're sacrificing your fabled reputation for honesty and impartiality in matters Lib Dem? For Matthew Taylor's statement, whilst rather silly, is not a prediction. Furthermore taken literally it was true -- few did believe Brown's growth forecasts, and few do believe that a reputation for prudence is sufficient.

Reading the rest of the press release though I take the point. The bit about the trade deficit is particularly strange.
