Javid makes the same mistake as Osborne
By massively exaggerating the cost of Labour's economic programme, the Conservatives' treasury spokesman has instantly produced propaganda which no objective voter is going to believe, especially as fact-checkers have already exposed the shaky foundations of the claim. It is reminiscent of the apocalyptic scenario of George Osborne of the day after the 2016 EU referendum. The ludicrously overblown predictions damaged the Remain case. Now Javid makes the same mistake - or was it a mistake? Perhaps Johnson's cabal wants to lose the general election.
