    Yes its sounds great to keep on spending money we dont have now.

    But lets face facts.

    If we dont cut back now and SPEND ONLY WHAT WE HAVE then we are creating a bigger problem for our children.

    People agreeing with the cuts should look at the bigger picture. We are spending money we dont have, we are borrowing money every single year. Our interest payments are at 50BILLION a YEAR. That could go a massive way to improving public servies or cutting taxes!

    If we carry on borrowing then cuts in the future when **** really hits the fan will be far worse, far deeper and far more damaging.

    Do you want your kids living in an area with no or very public services? Put up with it.

    I agree. People know we need to make cuts but they think they shouldn't affect them.

    We could tax the money we're currently borrowing. Then we wouldn't have to be slaves to bond markets or wreck the public services which make life tolerable for many.

    I don't think anyone with half a brain cell would disagree with the neccesity of the cuts, although I think the goverment are cutting too much too quickly (although I'd rather cuts happen severely than not at all in the long run)

    So noone will buy any future bonds? investors and institutions will look to invest in other foreign bonds. We will still need to borrow money for the next few years, the cuts wont balance the books untill what 2015?

    Not cutting anything is not a solution. If the national debt is not payed off then in the long run nobody would trade with the UK. No trade= no money= much much much much bigger cuts.

    Forgive me if I mis-wrote. Tax the difference between current revenue and spending, so that we do not need to sell bonds to raise money. In so doing eradicate the budget deficit and avoid cuts.

    So its selfish to disagree with the fact that the government is making 11000 serving members of the armed forces redundant.

    I'm afraid I can no longer agree with any cuts made by Cameron after they claim they HAVE to cut the NHS and increase university fees, then a little bit later fire £55 million worth of tomahawk missiles into Libya to save a bunch of rebels that I don't give a damn about.
