That Britain should be following the Irish in their budgets.
Am I wrong in thinking that the Irish recession is absolutely hideous and will cost them more in the long run, not to mention the life chances of all the people who will suffer from cuts in child benefits etc?
Once again Duncan I look to you to prick this particular bubble, particularly the idea that this sort of budget will lay a foundation for 20 years of solid growth – true or false?
Cutting all those benefits, mind you I’m disabled last year i had the new medical lucky for me yes they said I was disabled, but when I had the new benefits that comes with ESA it was twelve pounds a week less, which is a lot when you only get £89 a week it’s now down to £77.
So to be honest when labour said they were cutting DLA then changed that to only those over sixty five, I knew it was time for me to vote for another party, anyone would do.
I suspect it will be cuts from the Tories I expect that, I did not expect it from labour, perhaps i should have.
