Lord Mandelson admits Labour will have to cut spending

Lord Mandelson has become the first Cabinet minister to admit that Labour will have no choice but to cut Government spending after the election.

Bit more cake for now as Gordon urges more debt to keep housing market going until the really nasty stuff begins next year.

He should be careful, he will lose his seat come the election.

Opps, silly me, we can't vote him out.

I guess we'll have to vote Gorden out instead, then the dark lord can wrest control of the Labour party and stuff it full of his vampire horde, just in time for when the Tories get voted out again for being a bit mean.

You've got to love him, haven't you.

At least he is considering scrapping ID cards. That's got to be good.

Yes, no one will be able to identify the stream of tanned young S. American men coming and going at his Regents Park Mansion.

I don't care who he nails. If he scraps ID cards, that's a plus.

Now RB we know you've got to toe the line - but we spent most of yesterday discussing the implications of Darling's statements regarding cuts - including the withdrawal of universal child benefits.

In what way is Mandelson breaking ranks?

The slick reply would be that he has stopped lying :lol:

There is a serious side to this though and its very Nulabour.

GB is making a speech to the Trade Unions this week and we are told what he will be announcing. In fact he hasn't made up his mind what he is announcing yet because the speech is still to be written for him.

Over the last few days a stream of announcements and leaks have been made to guage public opinion. So far this idea of not continuing in a headlong dive into the brick wall of financial Armageddon seems to have found public support and will therefore be in the speech.

The other kite which has flown is the idea of extending means tested benefit. Obviously it will only mean that £1m bonus earning bankers will have to do without Child Benefit so that can't be bad. It won't be so rosy when it applies to everyone left in employment and apply to state pensions and the NHS.

They are using the UK population (or the more vocal ones at least) as a giant focus group to decide policy.

Correct, also known as democratic hypocrisy.
