Don't Say We Didn't Tell You....

Its reported that all the political parties are secretly planning cuts in public spending of about 30%, rather than the 10% being bandied about in public.

Well, thats no suprise to the blogosphere, who have been detailing the appalling amount of money that has been squandered this year, borrowing billions to prop up public finances.

The blogosphere said it was unsustainable, the blogosphere said huge cuts would have to come, the blogosphere said redemption would be painful. The blogosphere said all of this, but no-one in the mainstream listened.

Well hopefully, now they're listening. Hopefully, now they'll understand that accepting the status quo isn't good enough. If the government isn't challenged on every point of order, questioned about every action, we get to the stage we are at now.

Government has to account for its actions. Not only in the moral sense, but the financial sense too. Our current government has been bankrupt in both senses for years now.
