The chopping forecast

Shorter David Cameron on public-sector cuts:

I will do such things – what they are, yet I know not: but they shall be the terrors of the earth.

And I like Don’s shorter Nick Clegg.

It would be a huge mistake for the "centre-left community" to oppose our plans to cut jobs for young unemployed people, cancel the most successful savings scheme ever for low income poor families, cut the number of university places, take money away from schools, cut training for childcare workers, stop families on low incomes getting laptops, cut programmes which help children learn to read, cancel summer playschemes, close playgrounds, cut youth offending teams, and take away support which helps parents get jobs.

We have to do all these things, because otherwise it will be our children and grandchildren who suffer.
