Quotes

"The loans involve a lot of complicated calculations and there are lots of hoops to jump through. The interest rate is very much one of the key things. Most people are currently paying less than 6.5% on their mortgage so if people hear that here's a very complicated system and the interest is more than your mortgage, of course they're walking away. It certainly appears that they nailed their colours to the mast with this, I guess they are trying to get the figures up before the election so it doesn't look so bad."
The OBR has come under attack over its work before, with Alistair Darling previously stating "Right from the start the Tories used the OBR not just as part of the government but as part of the Conservative Party"
"Solar is a huge success in the UK, worth £2.2 billion a year, thanks to government support, and the tariff changes that protected consumers from a £50 a year bill rise by 2020 haven’t changed that success."
On February 21 2014, The Spectator followed this by asking: "Why has Britain signed up for the world's most expensive power station?" and stating that MPs owed it to the taxpayer to throw out the proposed Hinkley deal
