Austerity Illusions and Debt Delusions

If you tell a lie big enough and keep on repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it – clearly this is something the Tories agree with. The lies justifying the Coalition Government’s austerity policies are among the biggest. They’ve caused untold harm and misery to the overwhelming majority of us, while the richest have prospered. Yet still they continue.

Exposing the myths that austerity has 'saved the economy', 'reduced debt', 'brought down borrowing' and 'kick-started recovery' - this Class briefing gives the facts and realities behind the lies.

This pamphlet has been produced to expose the Coalition Government’s lies and prove that there are alternative routes back to jobs, higher living standards and economic recovery. Austerity hasn’t worked and it won’t work.
