  1. Did he actually use the word ‘save’? My understanding of the word ‘save’ is different from his!

  2. Get the unemployed back to work and have a blitz of benefits and then cut NICs. Simple but Darling is brainless- I agree with the last person who made a comment he does not the difference between save,spend and screw.

  3. The language of the cheats and liars:

    Invest = Spend

    Save = Take
