That again was an example of what you can do with a remorseless message. If you asked people any time over the last 7 years if we should reduce the deficit, they'd say yes, of course. Ask them what the deficit was (not the amount, the concept) and you'd get blank stares. What the Tories did was take a complex issue and put it in stark black and white terms. We need to reduce the deficit because it's a deficit and it needs to be reduced. Disagree? Question the logic? Deficit denier, and doesn't that just roll off the tongue?
