I think many of the cuts are wrong and unecessary and are the Tories decision to not just reduce the budget defecit, but they are using that as an excuse to make cuts way beyond it.
You'll see by the end of the year, when the next lot of cuts are made just what impact it will have on the country. Our public services for one will be massively hit and affect all of us who need to use them (ie not the super rich).
This country will be going down hill fast and we have the Tories to blame for wanting to do this and the Lib Dems to blame for allowing it to happen.
It is the people who will suffer and the people most in need who will suffer most.
Yes, the cuts are a neccessary evil. Besides, does stopping building new and modern schools within our country REALLY have a detromental effect on our education? NO! It's irrelevant. At the end of the day the primary objective of any school is to educate the pupils, and I personally don't think the state of a school will affect that.
The school academy thing is pointless. My school became a dance and drama academy. Nothing changed they just got to write academy on all their letters and built a new studio no one could use or knew how to use.
It has to take its fair share of the cuts, yes.
Should it take any more than the mean? No.
Should all departments be cut equally? Not necessarily.
We have a deficit to cut. This is the area that hurts us on TSR - but I'm sure on banking forums they're moaning about their cuts also. There is nothing special about education.
They should go to the polls: High taxes and good services or low taxes and cuts.
I'm sure it's easy for Cameron and the Bullingdon club to make unwise cuts (education) and ******** cuts (minister's pay decrease - they're all godamn millionaire's/heirs) when they are the last people to bear the brunt. Clearly, the conservatives are forgetting that by reducing the number of people in employment, there will be less tax revenue and more benefit spending. Moronic, no?
'Austerity measures' are a load of moralising **** that sound like they were made up by Catholics not economists.
I think the cuts are needed to put the country back on track after labours failure.
I don't agree strongly with most Conservative views, but I think they will do alot of good for the economy in the long run, we just need to bare with it for the time being.
I think the major thing we need to put back on is the pen-pushers and management, rather than anything else.
