It is galling in the extreme to be lectured by a Tory on the need to encourage a strong engineering base.

Let us not forget that it was the Tories who deliberately destroyed our engineering base in an infantile strategy aimed at emasculating the Trade Unions.

Our engineering industry is now substantially below critical mass. Our European partners didn't abandon their industry as we did, as a result we have to buy machine tools and materials from them as well as other world wide one time 3rd world countries.

When considering the advice given on the need for strong fiscal controls we should remember the previous Tory record in this respect: uncontrolled inflation, interest rates at 17%, and large scale property reposessions, together with massive unemployment.

Oh yes we should we should listen to Tory advice, and then treat it with the contempt it deserves!
