Even the Treachery Isn't Reliable

Doubtless emboldened by the debate recently granted for the appeasement of Daveybloke's Little Englanders, a significant percentage of Wee Nicky's remaining dupes have registered a certain discontent via the time-honoured Liberal Democrat device of writing a letter to the Guardian. Apparently still labouring under the delusion that the Government has some sort of interest in reducing the deficit, as opposed to using the deficit as a pretext for the cuts programme which is an end in itself, the gang of ten failed parliamentary candidates and cast-aside committee members claims to "take seriously the policies on which we fought the last general election, in particular the belief that the Conservatives' economic proposals would have dire consequences". Should they deign to lift their muzzles from the trough, Wee Nicky and his City-cred spokesbeing, Vincent Cable, are expected to respond that the Liberal Democrats were raring to slash and burn just as much as the two parties now remaining; although in all fairness that was before the election, like certain pledges on tuition fees, VAT, the health service and other minor matters.

    Ah I so love BeaurocaZy. Who else gets away with calling an increase in spending at twice the rate of inflation for a "cut" because a previously established plan had decreed an increase at 4x the rate of inflation?
