Spending Review - A Case of Balancing the Books on the Backs of the Poor

Yesterday's spending review demonstrated like nothing else just how our party leadership have betrayed the values we erstwhile all held dear. I have no doubt that many of our ministers in government worked hard behind the scenes to make it all "Less Bad" - but the ultimate impact, and their complicity in policies which seemed predicated on a belief that while someone is down they should get a kicking - is hugely disappointing. We have just issued a statement here on Liberal Left. But that doesn't express my own personal disappointment, that the wider parliamentary party appears to have nothing to say about Osborne's statement yesterday, other than to roll over and have their tummies tickled.

If the ideas and principles of 'Liberal Left'ever again became dominant in the Party I might just consider re-joining. As it is, I'm saddened at just how small a minority you and your friends are, Linda.

Thanks for your support Alfred, we may be a minority but we will continue to do what we can to ensure we are a vocal minority!
