There Are Bad Times Just Around The Corner II
David Cameron has warned that the cuts that the government envisages making are going to be deep and painful, and that they will dramatically affect the way that we live our lives.
The Tories have quite rightly blamed Labour for the mess, and are shrewdly using this mess as an opportunity to push forward their social/political agenda (eg revisions to benefits and pensions).
Tomorrow George Osborne will announce a "once-in-a-generation" revolution that will involve a public consultation exercise on what people expect from public services, and where they think the cuts should fall.
