Repsonse to Comprehensive Spending Review

I am appalled by the austerity measures announced by George Osborne, as reported this week. And even more specifically apalled by the reaction of our, so called 'leaders', locally, to those measures.

It is clear that after all I said to them in the election earlier this year, they have done nothing to make themselves aware of the workings of the monetary system that operates in this country.

The cuts announced in the spending review will do nothing to reduce the national debt, and they don’t come close to achieving the abolition of the deficit by 2015, as has been reported.

This was the main plank of my General Election Campaign here in Newbury.
