    I think people who are pro cuts should offer to either pay more tax or be made redundant if they work in the public sector.

    Students who are pro cuts should offer to pay more for their course, e.g. £20,000 pa instead of £9000.

    People who are pro cuts should put their money where their mouth is.

    They should offer to fan David Cameron with palm leaves and feed him grapes since they seem to embrace their own servitude with such enthusiasm.

    Yeah, if you think cuts a neccesary why don't you be a good citizen and volunteer to bear the brunt of them rather than the people who think they are a bad idea.

    People who are pro cuts are bearing the cuts to though.

    You can hardly claim all 46% of people (maybe more not sure what the recent polls are) who support the cuts are rich who will not be affected by them.

    It takes some bizarre twist of logic to come to the conclusion that being less beholden to the state is being in favour of more servitude.

    Presumably, by your logic, if we were forced at gunpoint to divulge all earnings to the Treasury we would in fact be enjoying absolute freedom.

    Cameron was a bad example, perhaps one of the Rothschilds would have been more appropriate.

    Surely it should be the "no cuts" people offering to pay more tax? These services they don't want cut have to be funded somehow...

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
