With the 2015 General Election now less than six weeks away, attention has turned to the main political parties’ economic strategy. As always the debate will have a crucial influence on who ends up in power.
David Cameron has claimed that his government are running on a “record of economic success”. A key part of his pre-election rhetoric has centred on warning of the risks involved in handing the country’s economic recovery over to the Labour Party. He has urged voters to remember Labour’s record of high borrowing while in office, something which Cameron insists would be disastrous for Britain’s economy should it happen again.
