Gordon Brown promises public-sector investment again

Again, Gordon Brown has attempted to pull a rabbit out of the hat in the shape of public-sector investment at a time when there is no doubt that the UK budget cannot withstand such promises. In direct contradiction to the Minister for education, Gordon Brown has suggested that investment into the UK education system will continue despite only a couple of weeks ago the party admitting that up to £2 billion would have to be reduced from the education cost base.

They were also various promises regarding help for the elderly, are subject upon which the Labour Party always seems to have an opinion when in need of votes, help for the Armed Forces, again a very controversial subject which has attracted significant criticism, as well as concerted attacks on the "upper classes". Whether or not Gordon Brown has done enough to maintain the support of his Labour Party peers remains to be seen although one thing is for certain, he does not look like a man who is just about to give up office.

The main problem which UK voters will have over the coming months is deciding which policy promises to believe and which to bin because ultimately many of these promises will change when the new government is in place.
