Cuts and Cuts

Keir was listening to Radio 5, as is his want, on the way home from work this evening, and A N Other from the Indy was doing the News Review, and while discussing Cameron's speech today about the "...inevitably hard times that lay ahead" he said that it is likely that this is a see-through bit of spin, softening the ground and setting the stage for the Tories to reap the benefits of being able to say they are going to be cutting less.

Something interesting over the weekend, too, on the deficit.
Mr Cameron started his speech by saying problems were "even worse than we thought"
Keir thought he remembered something like this though...

This is all political positioning and posturing (though at least he has been brave enough to not proclaim the death of 'spin'), none of the 'national interest' here.
