    Ask him if he is in favour of AV?
    If he agrees with the 'Darling deficit plan' (half the deficit over 4 years)?

    Ask him if he agrees with the Darling plan of slowly cutting the deficit and if so, why he is willing to extend the life of cuts and pain for families across the country for saving political face?

    ^^ Explanation being that the longer the deficit remains, the higher the debt interest payments, thus higher the deficit and debt and thus more cuts being required to merely offset the lack of cuts in the first place.

    The problem is, you cut all these frontline services and other important services so fast, lots of people loose their jobs. This means more people on Job Seekers Allowance, therefore not earning much money, thus not being able to spend money in the private sector. Therefore the private sector is not recieving the buisness and will end up in decline, buisnesses close down and more and more people on Job Seekers Allowance. Cycle of decline.

    but thanks for suggesting a question.

    It is not the job of the state to provide a job to every Tom, **** and Harry.

    Well it is, a main role of being in government is to provide jobs for people. This is simply the well being of people. Its every Tom **** and Harry which work hard, pay thier taxes and in some cases look after their family. They cant look after their family if they dont have a job.

    No it isn't. The role of the state is first and foremost the security and defence of it's population and terrortory. It is the individual responsibility of citizens to seek, gain and maintain employment.

    Labour's plan won't result in a dull ache Barden. It will be like dealing with permanent tooth ache (Labour) and having it removed (Coalition).

    Surely the job of the government is to exact the will of the majority of the population?

    Yes but if nobody were to work and spent their time in the jobcentre, they would soon get pretty pissed off with not working, they would need somebody to blame and the government will be it. They would simply vote for another party. Therefore, the government needs to provide jobs for its people or they simply wont be voted in. Cutting all of these public sector jobs will take away a lot work and in 4 years time now, people wont be working and will be voting for a party which isnt going to take away thier jobs which they rely on.

    The government need to make sure they are creating jobs so people can work.
