Have the Tories got it all wrong?

Today's financial press is dominated by yesterday's news that Tory government will introduce the largest cut in public sector investment for over 30 years if they are successful at the next general election. While there are some supporters who applaud this honest assessment of the UK economy there are others who now believe the Tory party has played into the hands of Labour. So what will happen next?

It will very much come down to how the UK economy is perceived over the next six months as to whether the Conservative party has risked alienating some voters with an "honest" assessment of the situation. If the Labour Party is able to put forward a more structured campaign of public sector cuts which is accepted by the UK public then there is the chance that Gordon Brown could begin to build on Labour's low vote at the moment and potentially eat into the Conservative lead - a lead that has been constant for some time.

This is most certainly a brave move by the Conservative party although it is one which is not without its risks as the party can literally smell victory. Once the Conservative party conference week is over then we will be able to compare and contrast the differing opinions and views of Conservative and Labour and things should be a little clearer.
