The political agonies of all three of the UK's main parties over the economy are getting worse, not better, halfway through the present parliament. Is there any way out for George Osborne and co? The answer, it turns out, is probably 'no'.
We interview the centre-left thinktank IPPR's chief economist, Tony Dolphin, Europe Economics' director and principal Andrew Lilico and the director of political and social research at pollsters YouGov, Joe Twyman.
