Spending Review: 20/10/2010 - Skoob News reports that the Con-Dem Coalition lived up to their election pledge by kicking seven shades of crap out of the poorest and most vulnerable members of society.
Proportionally - it's the poor who will bear the brunt of repairing the damage caused by the global recession.
Nothing new there then as 490,000 public sector jobs face the axe over the next four years, with unions warning that the cuts will condemn hundreds of thousands of individuals to long term unemployment for at least ten years.
The alternative - to minimise cuts would have been more expensive in the long term than the current swingeing method as enforced by the government, but the immediate impact would have been measurably less severe.
The word 'drastic' springs to mind.
But they don't care, because the cuts will have little or no effect on them and their champagne quaffing cohorts.
Most of those who will lose their jobs actually voted Conservative or Lib-Dem.
Some poetic justice in that.
You were warned on this very page, but you went ahead regardless. Welcome to the age of the aircraft carrier with no aircraft. The library without books. Streets without police.
More as we get it.
