    TORY SUPPORTERS MOVE ALONG.

    So yesterday was good fun - and hopefully showed this abysmal excuse for a government that there what they are doing is not only unfair, but economically illogical, according to nobel prize winning economists. No doubt some tory will now disagree with me, but please, like i said, MOVE ALONG.

    But when is the next protest? Maybe it's time for another student one, to show the government we still haven't forgotten?

    Whatever happens, i'll be there next time as well.

    Peace.

    So no cuts at all is economically logical?
    Yep! need to invest rather than cut. create jobs, collect tax etc.

    in fact its cuts which are economically illogical. you can euse Ireland as an example of where cuts have taken place only for the country to then need bailing out. Or our own economy is facing cuts and starting to implement them and currently in our economy unemployment is rising, inflation is rising, growth is declining, services are declining.......its not looking good and it will only get worse

    So your saying you need growth based on debt, you can only get growth from private investment not from investing in public services and then running out of other peoples money to spend.

    Read this: http://johannhari.com/2011/03/29/the...itish-politics

    It's not completely solid, but gives you a good logical explanation supported with examples like Ireland.

    Most of that article seems to refer to debt. The problem is not debt but amount of debt but the deficit.

    I think more than a protest we need a 1 day public sector strike. iraq war march had 2million people on it. protests are important and have their place but there not the only weapon.

    and so why do you propose to cut! you can use Ireland as an example of where cuts have taken place only for the country to then need bailing out. Or our own economy is facing cuts and starting to implement them and currently in our economy unemployment is rising, inflation is rising, growth is declining, services are declining.......its not looking good and it will only get worse


    we need to invest rather than cut. create jobs, collect tax etc.

    Ireland was always doomed, it's defecit was 32% of GDP.
    Sharp and fast cuts have proven to work before, Canada in the 1990's is an example, and the taxation model Osbourne is using is similar to the one used in Scandanavia, and we all know how well they are doing.

    Lol. Osbourne is an economic joke. You said Ireland was doomed to fail....but thats not what Osbourne sais. he said he should learn from irelands economics...its just laughable, he could not have got it any more WRONG!!! he was wrong in the boom years and is wrong now in the bust years. complete joker. Look and learn from across the Irish Sea by George Osbourne

    further, why has winter fuel allowance been cut. old people WILL die. its not an academic debate, this is life and death for a lot of people. you want to go and visit some freezing cold 86 year old and tell her how successful these cuts are going to be! how sharp fast cuts are proven towork.!! please think about it.
