The eight Tory party economic benchmarks

Shadow Chancellor George Osborne has today issued eight Tory party economic benchmark measurements which he believes will allow those in the UK and around the world to measure the performance of the UK economy. One of the major pledges is to retain the UK's AAA credit rating which has been under a little doubt over the last few months because of the large budget deficit predicted for the next few years.

Some of the other pledges made by the Tory party include a promise to cut the UK budget deficit as quickly as possible, rebalance the economy, lower youth unemployment, improve Britain's ranking regarding tax competitiveness, ensure better value for money for taxpayers, lower emissions via the introduction of low carbon technology as well as the creation of a safer banking system. These are obviously vital pledges at the heart of the Conservative Party's economic strategy and on the surface they do look to be very sensible in the current economic climate.

However, as we have seen in the past from so many opposition parties, what they promise today is not always what they deliver if they eventually gain office. Will David Cameron and his team be any different to those in the past?
