David Smith: Economic outlook
From Brighton to Manchester. The lower reaches of the football league, the old Division Three, to the top of the Premier League. The analogy is not perfect — the Conservatives are losing their way in Europe — but it will do. For the first time in nearly two decades they are holding a pre-election party conference with a reasonable chance they will form the next government.
That means there is added pressure on the party to lift the veil on policy, particularly economic policy, where we have had plenty of generalities but few specifics.
