Yeah, it's true that the Tories started PFI, but Labour ramped it up so much, and my memory is that it was Labour that started doing it to hospitals, which is much worse than bridges and roads and things. And it was Labour that changed unemployment benefit to the horrible Job Seekers' Allowance and incapacity benefit to ESA, and contracted an IT firm to put disabled people through assessments to see if they're really disabled.

I definitely like Sure Start a lot, and that's a good example of Labour actually being better at something than the Conservatives. Thank you. I also like Corbyn's plan for universal free school meals, but it feels really cosmetic, accompanied by pointedly doing nothing at all about the cuts which are leaving so many children dependent on school to get adequate nutrition at all.

Tax credits versus Universal Credit I don't have strong views on. I liked the idea of Universal Credit but the implementation has been a clusterfuck. I haven't seen much evidence of Labour opposing it, though.
