Are the Conservatives the 'party of builders' that Osborne claims?
These projects could change the country’s landscape, and the new National Infrastructure Commission has been tasked with making them a reality
George Osborne’s assertion in his conference speech that the Conservatives are the political “builders” included references to billions of pounds worth of infrastructure projects. The chancellor will struggle to match his words with deeds because it is much easier to make the case for an expensive project than to build one.
Nonetheless, he made the case for a new generation of ambitious schemes. But will they ever see the light of day?
