It is nonsensical for Carolyn Fairbairn to ‘stand by’ the
CBI’s analysis, but Labour should publish its costings
There were two important statements from the CBI on Thursday.
One, as you’d expect, was a view on the new UK-EU withdrawal
agreement. In short, the employer’s body welcomes anything that
lessens the chances of a damaging no-deal Brexit but it warned that
“big questions remain about the feasibility of negotiating a new
trade agreement deep enough in a 14-month transition period.”
Yes, entirely fair.
The other statement was an attempt to end the ridiculous row
with Labour over the cost of the party’s nationalisation plans.
This one was slippery, to put it kindly.
