1) your cuts, which
a) whilst they might reduce the amount britain spends annually, it does not pay back the deficit
b) cause lesser revenue (less tax revenue, less jobs for contractors and third party firms)
c) generate costs of their own (benefit for the ex public sector workers now unemployed, and for the contractors loss of jobs)
(Im forgetting the loss of services here)
2) Your suggestion that the private sector will grow enough to compensate, when
d) private sector businesses are being hit with increases in petrol and fuel costs
e) private sector is being hit by people (see '3' below) not having money (let alone confidence) to spend on stuff.
f) private sector is unable to expand significantly abroad as the uk employment rates are still too high to compete with cheaper options (and that is what THEY have set up even our investers pension and assurance companies to invest in)
3) the benefit bill due to the extreme and increased burden due to
g) those made unemployed by cuts (public sector)
h) those who are made unemployed by the cuts (those contractors and 3rd party companies that do work for public sector)
i) the ever increasing loss of jobs in the private sector (see ose in the private sector (see '2')
j) the ever increasing number of people who are made homeless by repossessions and those unable to afford rent due to
j1) less benefit
j2) loss of jobs
j3) increase in petrol and fuel
j4) increasing increases in food prices
j5) increases in tax due to shortfall in revenues (see also '4' below)
j6) decreases in charity funds (due to people having less money in general and also due to there having to be an increase in the number of charities to cover the services that the gov is cutting and says that charities will do the services instead (there is only a finite pot of money that will be given to charities and yet this will decrease at the same time as the amount of charities will increase and at the same time as the demands on even the existing charities will increase)
4) the loss of tax revenues caused by more and more large firms deciding that they would like to be taxed somewhere else cheaper?
k) will the gov have to decide to tax the fewer people in jobs more?
l) will the gov have to decide to tax the fewer uk companies (that are too small to be multi nationals and pay less tax abroad instead) more?
5) so at the end of a year supposing they reduce the annual spend, but then its not such a reduction after all as the costs (mainly in benefits) will go up, partly due to the cuts, they will also have lesser tax revenues.
This means that they will have done the neat trick of shrinking the uks services and economy AND still causing a shortfall in the government spend cos they've failed to take into account vastly reduced tax revenue and increased benefit and costs of fucking around with stuff
Hurrah for the tories blueprint to destroy the UK faster than the other similar nations demise (for OTP yes yes Im sure the labour one is crap too)
PS where do we think THEY are planning to hole up? (where is their compound?)
