Of course the question is whether you would have marched if a Labour Govt, or Lib Lab coalition, had suggested similar cuts? Which they would have.
If they had not, we would be in the same state as Portugal, pleading for help.
Oddly enough Alistair Darling understood this, which is why, as an honest man, he walked away.
He, and, Simon Hughes
, are good friends. Smell the coffee. You may not like the Osborne solution, not sure I do. But there is not much room for manoeuvre.
If you want to march, march against G brown who promised the public sector the earth. ( PS I have spent half my life in the public sector)
My sympathies with those who have/will lose their jobs, I did in 2009, but do look at the realities.
