    Of course the cuts are too fast, because making 500,000 people redundant over 4years is really more painful to the individual than over 8 years.

    Whilst Britain can't help being full of uneducated Labour supporters who obviously all have a masters in Economics, I think the root of the problem is david camoron.

    labour are having a good old laugh about how their dedicated brain numb peasant voters are running around london like children today, with no idea Labour had the same in store for them had they been re-elected, things could have been different had cameron been a real conservative.

    he has made deep cuts - pissing off the Left but hasnt really cut taxes either - pissing off the right. idealogically, it would have made sense to cut deep enough to enable him to make huge tax cuts. those tax cuts would have fuelled economic growth to get those unemployed back into work - like thatcher is remembered for doubling unemployment, people conveniently forgot she halved it back by 6 years.

    cutting even deeper may sound outrageous, but it doesnt necessarily involve public spending cuts. if cameron got us out of the EU he could have offset the savings from that by making tax cuts which would have made him popular two-fold

    is david cameron harming the right's credibility? or would the 'money grows on trees' movement protest anyway because a conservative govt. are in power?

    Errrrr, what?

    Go into any university and you'll find that Labour has far more support among lecturers and profs than any other party. The Tory core support comes from simple minded Express reading little Englanders and Daily Mail reading housewives.

    It's well known that the Tories are the party of idiots.

    Thatcher increased public spending, in real terms, during her premiership. She is a bit of a darling of the right but as far as I can see the only thing she really stood for was using the absolute bonanza of selling state assets and North sea oil in the short-term, without reducing the national debt...

    I am at university studying law and vote tory. Quite a significant number support the tory party in my year. Idiots - clearly not.

    The core of Labour votes are from BNP/EDL sympathisers (cos it like ol'days) who end up on the Jeremy Kyle reading the mirror whilst masturbating over the thoughts of benefits, drugs, alcohol and Stalin.

    How can you say you're studying law at university and are therefore not an idiot... and then make a stupid statement like that? It's kinda hard to take you seriously when you come out with that sort of thing.

    Somebody clearly doesn't know their politics.

    Power is trending towards that which makes people most electable. it has long be said that the UK is Conservative with a small 'c', and that if you were to take a cross section of the electorate that is where the majority of their policies lie. It is in that respect that the Right wing of Labour and the left wing [One nation] conservatives are all attempting to appeal to that power bloc. The hardcore left has been long dead as a mass movement in Europe because despite what many Socialists think, they number in the very few compared to what they used to be. On the other hand, right wing traditionalism is not effective in this modern age, and as for laissez faire economics? Well, it worked in Thatchers time partially because she was aided by a massive external economic boost in the form of North Sea Oil, but now the majority of our reliance is on the volatile banking sector, which has the potential for huge gains or huge losses. In other words, it does not make sense to pander to either side, but to take a prude method. In this case, the consensus between most financial experts is that cuts have to be made [although there is debate as to what degree they should be made], as increasing taxes will actually statistically reduce revenue generated and will contract the private sector, however, abolishing entirely several public services is electoral suicide and the Tories would appeal to far fewer people.
