Of course Labour’s last manifesto could be delivered within the current State aid rules. I think the discussion has now moved on. Even the most ardent is now having to come to terms that was never an insurmountable problem, rather it was exaggerated for effect

I’m reading that the UK has given £291m within the rules. Of course it’s easier to blame some technical rules, rather than to question whether there is the budget to fund intervention...
