The argument thrown at David Cameron, quite correctly, is what would they do in government ?
Nobody seems to know, and even when Cameron proposes something it is more of a general idea than a real policy initiative. So when the Tories chose today to announce that under Tory plans 5p would be chopped from the price of a litre of petrol, we might be excused for being a bit cynical.
How will this £3bn pledge be paid for ? Just silence on this from the Tories.
Now given the bad publicity the Tories have had over the resignation of the deputy mayor of London, am I being cynical in thinking they've announced this all rather quickly in order to bury the bad news ?
