If the great Stephen Glover of the Daily Wail says so, then it must be so. Four days after this blog highlighted a low profile and barely noticed story in the finance pages of the Failygraph that referenced the myth of public spending cuts, the Great Glover has weighed in.
Of course it would be churlish to criticise him for being only four days behind, after all he is very important and busy and highly paid and says he has been saying this for months. So perhaps we should point to the fact this blog, in the slipstream of the excellent Richard North at EU Referendum, was exploding the myth of public spending cuts as far back as October 2010.
It’s nice someone in the media has noticed and used their powerful pulpit to preach the ‘news’. But it would be better if they were using their time and vast resources to explode these myths first instead of trailing in the wake of the far less important and resource-free blogs. At least Glover offers some value by reminding his readers to ignore the BBC and Labour. That is always sound advice.
