This was reblogged with the following message from its author, Steve Walker: “Ken Clarke and other now ex-ministers, interviewed following their ‘reshuffling’ in David Cameron’s desperate attempt to show he’s doing something, anything, fell back as usual on the outright lie that they’re supporting the government’s efforts to undo the ‘economic mess’ left by the last Labour government. This lie has been repeated so many times that it has become ‘received wisdom’ in spite of the fact that it is patent nonsense. So please read and share this post that I’m reblogging. It desperately needs to percolate into the public consciousness.”
