Comment on Tories' bank sell-off plan

In search of this week's press release, the Conservative party cooked up a plan to give away the public's shares in the banks to 'low-income' families; presumably to fill the hole in their social policy created by taking away Sure Start, child trust funds and childrens' tax credits from middle income earners.I would just say this.When it comes to the shares in the banks the public expects us to focus on getting their money back. That means selling them at a time and way that maximises their value, not an irresponsible and expensive political gimmick.My interview on today's Politics Show in the West Midlands will be on iPlayer soon.
