Corbyn’s Labour must avoid the fate of Hollande’s Parti Socialiste


Following the recent close UK election that delivered a minority Conservative government, there is now every chance that Jeremy Corbyn could be the UK’s next prime minister after fresh elections. Whilst Labour’s manifesto was good, the leading think tank on public finance issues, the Institute for Fiscal Studies, found serious discrepancies in the projected revenue and tax figures. Richard Angell explains how he thinks Labour can avoid the fate of France’s Parti Socialiste.

Au lendemain de l’élection britannique qui a résulté en un gouvernement conservateur minoritaire, il existe maintenant de fortes chances que Jeremy Corbyn puisse être le prochain Premier ministre du Royaume-Uni aux prochaines élections. Tandis que le manifeste du Parti travailliste

était bon, le groupe de réflexion sur les questions de finances publiques, l’Institut d’études fiscales (IFS), a constaté de graves écarts dans les chiffres fournis sur les recettes et les impôts. Richard Angell explique comment, selon lui, le Parti travailliste peut éviter le sort du Parti socialiste en France.
