George Osborne to unveil £6bn of spending cuts as era of austerity begins
Only another £157 billion (or is it £139 billion?) to go, before the British government is actually living within its means. And no doubt even this paltry amount of £6 billion, within the £7 billion quantum wave level of statistical noise, will push the client state to the edge of the streets.
Talk about symbolic tokenism. And most of that £6 billion has already been re-spent on the pet projects necessary to hold the Glorious Coalition together.
After all, there's no point marrying someone you don't like, just for the power, unless you can have a bit of fun on the side with other people's money.
Pass the brandy, Sir Humphrey.
