No rush

David Cameron: Conservatives will not make 'swingeing cuts'

A Tory government would not make ''swingeing cuts'' to public spending in its first term of taking office, David Cameron has said. He said that while a Conservative government would make a start on cutting the £178 billion deficit if it took power at the general election, it would not move too quickly. ''We're not talking about swingeing cuts. We're talking about making a start in reducing our deficit,'' he told The BBC Politics Show.

  • They may not cut discretionary spending, but the value of the pound will plummet, so services will collapse. You bet tho that we will maintain much of our spending on debt, to the bankers. Do you now miss sovereign silver and gold?

  • Lord Mandelson said it was ”disgraceful” the way the Conservative leadership had been talking about the economy.

    ”It is talking Britain down when David Cameron compares Britain ludicrously in everyone’s eyes to Greece, and when George Osborne describes Britain as an exhausted runner at the back of a long marathon race unable to summon the strength to build our economy,” he told The Politics show.

    ”That is disgraceful, it is irresponsible. It’s also unpatriotic.”

    I thought it was reasonably honest.
