Tough Cameron for Times readers … gentle Clegg for Observer readers

Nick Clegg vows no return to savage cuts of the Thatcher years

Nick Clegg has staked his political reputation on a pledge that under the coalition government there will be no return to the savage cuts of the 1980s. In an interview with the Observer, he launched a withering attack on the economic policies of Margaret Thatcher and promised instead to look to the examples of Sweden, Canada and the US to deliver "progressive" cuts.

  • Thatcher’s ‘cuts’ were made in a far better fiscal environment.

    To do any good, these new cuts will need to go much further.

    But it doesn’t look as though this regime has got the guts to do the job.
