Cameron Bigs It Up For June 22

Recommended Posts

With the budget of the Department for Work and Pensions set to face cuts of up to 20% over the next five years, ministers are hoping for large savings from schemes to force claimants off incapacity benefit and into work.

Bye bye the DWP's Support For Mortgage Interest scheme.

More draconian measures are also on the table. Freezing all benefits for 12 months next year would raise £4.1 billion. Executing a Liberal Democrat pledge to axe child credits for couples on a joint income of more than £26,000 could save more than £1 billion a year.

Child tax credits are very good for bailing out mortgage lenders. But this policy won't have great impact, unless they decide to aim their axe at the root.

All public sector workers earning more than £18,000 a year already face a pay freeze next year, but it is understood that curbs in wage rises beyond 2011 are likely to be unveiled in the budget on June 22.

Debt courts will be waving hello to public sector workers for years to come - "We've been expecting you for soooo long!"

June 23rd will be armageddon for so many people in the UK- probly me included if my contract doesn't get renewed after July 2nd.

Only today I was talking to a friend in the public sector- just had to accept a 1200 quid p.a. pay cut. (And he's not a high earner by any stretch)

Is Nick on a collision course with what Dave is going for then?

It is not possible to ignore our debts or it's bankruptcy. Unfortunately the cuts required to control it are so large it is almost certain to cause further recessionary times. Thanks Mr Brown. The pain is largely your making. Insufficient bank regulation, a boom and bust he said we would never have again (like yeah!), a pre crunch structural deficit of £60billion.

“There were two levels of optimism in what the [Labour] government was forecasting,” Cameron said. “One was trampoline growth of 3% and above, and the second theory was that interest rates would always stay low.

Clegg is like a second division footballer who has taken the ball to within sight of the goal for the first time in his career...but then doesn't know what to do.

He has had three weeks as Deputy Prime Minister and done nothing, said little.

About as important as an American Vice President. (Can anyone say who that is, by the way?)
