    On Radio 4 today - fighting the cuts

    by Sunny
    14th August, 2010 at 3:25 pm    

    On BBC Radio 4 today:

    Cuts in public spending are coming and, according to a recent opinion poll, a majority of voters accept that they will have to happen if the budget deficit is to be reduced.

    But what happens when people realise that cuts may affect them personally? The coalition government has asked voters for feedback about how and where the cuts might bite. How else can voters make their voices heard beyond Westminster, short of going on strike?

    I’m also interviewed in the programme and you can hear my lovely voice (not) at 10min and 15 secs in.

      i hope you expressed your shock and horror on discovering your Liberal vote had been used to prop up the most rightwing and cretinous administration since 1930?

      The tragedy is that much of the electorate, as well as your own house libertarian, have bought the Tory line that their decimation of the public sector is inevitable and necessary, when it is clearly motivated by an extreme right wing agenda that would make Thatcher - who was at least a friend of business - blush. But this lot of toffs and millionaires couldn’t even give a toss about that - this is all about widening the inequality gap and making people fear poverty again. Why else destroy a sector that has sheltered so many from the capricious whims of the market, and the capitalist?
