Chris Leslie has been at it again and yet again pulled up over exaggerations and generally making stuff up. This time however, it seems he was just copying his boss, Ed Miliband.
The IFS reported that the Tory plans are “a significantly larger reduction in borrowing and debt than Labour plans” however Leslie said that the IFS called them “extreme” which he was pulled up on by the BBC interviewer.
Leslie has shown many times his lack of principles, for example whilst questioning Tory tax plans he is not so keen on being questioned about Labour’s.
