Chancellor: Labour cuts would be tougher than Thatcher’s
Nick Robinson | 16:55 UK time, Thursday, 25 March 2010
The chancellor has conceded in an interview with me that if Labour is re-elected, public spending cuts will be tougher and deeper than those implemented by Margaret Thatcher.
Robinson: “The Treasury’s own figures suggest deeper, tougher than Thatcher’s – do you accept that?”
Darling: “They will be deeper and tougher – where we make the precise comparison I think is secondary to an acknowledgement that these reductions will be tough.”
Reality check before you read Salford Labours latest leaflets..
I will Bring Regeneration and Jobs to the City.
Question if John Merrys regime failed can he tell us how?
Demand a Better deal from the Tories.
Question if John Merry failed then how does he hope to make any difference .
I will ensure that Salford provide efficient,value for money services.
Question how ?the Labour regime under Cllr Merry seemed to have hit a brick wall on that one.
More Labour bluster we think so…
Tory party co-treasurer Peter Cruddas offered access to the prime minister and chancellor for up to £250,000. What do they say it’s not what you know it’s how much brass you can give the Tories,what a way to do business!!
