Trust us, we're Tories

George Osborne, the shadow chancellor, appears to be running the Tory party this week in David Cameron's absence.

In a speech on tax in Manchester he has promised to simplify the tax system but moved away from any idea of introducing a flat tax in Britain.

He has also said "up-front promises of tax cuts are very unlikely to be on offer at the next election". The Tories, as he has said before, will put stability ahead of tax cuts. Surely what he means is that the Tories will put maintaining Labour's level of public spending - give or take a little bit here or there - ahead of tax cuts.
