It's taken less than a year for the Mandarins to corrupt Cameron's government into backing reckless and unaffordable spending from the tax-take; today alone we've had notice of 'at least a billion' more on the carriers, plus an extra £917m to HMRC, then another £400m to set up the new PRA. That's £2.4bn just thrown in carelessly in just a few days. It cuts all credibility from beneath Cameron's feet as he pretends to complain about increased EU spending; he's showing he can be just as profligate and exercise just as much fiscal malfeasance as Brown.
As Cameron demonstrated again yesterday, he's a bear of very little brain.Civil Service establishment figures are actually holding steady, and are set to increase substantially as the 'cuts' bite. Those cuts, of course, apply to everything but the Central State and its avaricious, corrupt dags.
I can taste sick in my throat at the thought that I once almost believed the honeyed lies.
