"After 2010 British politics was shaped by one idea above all others: austerity. We were told that there wasn't enough money to pay for EMA, university fees, council housing or even the existing range of benefits. And yet the government's response to Covid-19 demonstrates the extent to which that was a political choice rather than an economic inevitability. Most striking of all? Even the BBC is saying it."
