    Nope, it's just ideologically decided. Tories have this image that anyone on benefits is a scrounger and anyone with billions in overseas bank accounts is a national treasure.

    As a Labour man I can understand that cuts may be needed, but it's the Tory policy for you. I don't think they particularly care whether or not they win the election at the minute, this is the way they believe it should be and hopefully by the time of the GE the majority of the public will forget what happened in 2013.

    And remember even if labour get in they won't be changing anything back. This needs to happen. Even labour know it.

    Not sure why people are against the OP? David Cameron signed his 'election loss' warrant long ago. Period.

    Look that is true its going to be near impossible for labor to change these cuts as this DISGUSTING government have spent alot for it to make it hard to reverse the changes but some stuff will be changed that's for sure

    How do you reverse privatisation exactly? Buy back at a higher rate? You're right, these cuts are going to happen but I trust labour to distribute them more fairly than the Tories are.

    How exactly have they been distributed unfairly?

    Labour won't do much different. The problems are systemic within capitalism.

    Would that be the capitalism that pays for our welfare state?

    The capitalism that keeps many unemployed and in some cases unemployable.

    Well they have promised us a referendum on the EU. And by the time the elections come round the economy would've picked up significantly and they would've reduced the deficit. So don't right them off just yet.They've won me over.

    Why did Mr Cameron not get a majority in 2010??? simple question all the indicators where in his favor
    One of the major reasons was that it required the Tories to be 8% ahead to have a majority of 1.

    I though I'd made it. Capitalism pays the welfare bill. If you're advocating a communist society you may want to read up on world events. It hasn't quite worked out.

    Why is Cameron pressing ahead with these cuts?

    In 2014 he hopes Scotland becomes independent as that country votes against the Westminster machine. Result is 50 Labour MPs less at Westminster. Enough for another Tory majority maybe?

    I suggest you go back to look at what I actually wrote.

    I assume he means "the reserve army of the unemployed". Capitalism does not seek full employment as that would mean labour would have more leverage in terms of demanding wages and conditions.

    I did. You were implying capitalism was the problem. I highlighted that it's because of capitalism we can afford a welfare bill. You disagreed. What are you advocating?
