Common features in the two manifestos.

If you choose to - you can see a great deal of similarity in the two manifestos. They agree that if we are to have a functioning civilized economy in the new world we need a massive injection of investment in infrastructure, education, skills, R & D and innovation. The investment is to be paid for later by taxed raised from wealth created in the future, so it had better be made to pay off.

Both sides appear to agree on these main items - so I say - 'get on with it'.

If you choose to get tribal about it, you may say you don't believe that one or other or both sides really mean what they say. You may even say that you know that they don't mean it, that they are wolves in sheep's clothing, and that you know for sure what they are actually planning.

If you choose to - you may decide to look at things in a way that highlights all the differences in their policies or values or underlying beliefs.
