(Bloomberg Opinion) -- It may seem strange to be worried about inflation in the midst of a global recession, a pandemic and huge political ructions in the U.S. but there's no denying that real people are going to pay more for everything this year. Even the Federal Reserve will scour whether inflation is high enough during its annual monetary policy review on Wednesday and Thursday.

But we also find that with fewer than 30 years to go in the next parliament the upfront spending necessary to meet those goals will force Labour towards unsustainable levels of defence spending. To break free of the financial restraints Labour would need to leave the EU by the 'tipping point': in other words there could be no more funding for the NHS without damaging the economy.
