LETTER : `Feelgood' factor is not good for the economy

Click to follow
Sir: I am not so naive that I believe policies win elections, but this government seems determined to rely on the elusive "feelgood factor" which Kenneth Clarke appears to force upon us at every opportunity.

I have news for Mr Clarke and his friends: you don't feel good without a job, when a hospital turns you away because there's no bed, when your children struggle to get a decent education, or when you see Parliament abused by its own elected members.

Too many people feel bad for the rest of us to feel good.
