After the HoC Library withdrew its blog article for reasons of “impartiality” that have yet to be fully explained, I’m glad that Andy Burnham has called on the UK Statistics Authority to clarify the facts.
Of course, if the facts are at odds with what Messrs Cameron and Hunt said, they will be guilty of misleading Parliament. That used to carry a heavy penalty but (as readers of Vox Political will be tired of seeing me repeat by now) this is a criminal government; it does what it likes.
