    Default The sad choice facing Britain today ...

    Vote Labour and see the country descend into 70's style crisis as they spend money which doesn't exist.

    Vote Conservative and see a decade of austerity. Many of you think cutting public sector jobs is a good idea. But that means worse services for us on stuff we use like hospitals and schools. Plus the canned public sector employees stop spending on private sector goods and services.

    It's a no win.

    The country has been a Walter Mitty "Fantasy Island" for too long - we behave like a super-power, go to wars abroad and pay ourselves too much without producing anything.

    Now its time for cold hard reality.
    Hard Brexit now!

    Bring on the austerity. Home made knitwear and skiffle, your hour has come again!

    I've enjoyed every minute of it.
    I was miserable and depressed, but CUK turned it all around. Now I'm depressed and miserable.

    Vote conservative, use private healthcare/private education. Easy peasy.

    Leave the country and let the idiot labour voting suckers to live in the strife they brought upon themselves.
    How did this happen? Who's to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you're looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.

    No it does not. Infact health and education spending can increase.

    What you don't need are hordes of civil servants on £100K pa plus bonuses plus final salary pensions. You could cut a huge amount of spending on total tulipe and slash the benefits system to the core. Can't be bothered to work, fine, starve on the streets.

    The simple solution to the pension deficit for all the public sector workers is to raise the pension age in Britain to 90. Most of them won't be claiming a penny. That's the pension problem solved.

    Don't be naive. In theory you are correct. You could trim the fat at the top.
    But what are the chances of that? No, it will be swathes of NHS cleaners, nurses, teachers at the bottom level who will go.
    The senior civil servants will keep their perks and gold-plated pensions.
    Hard Brexit now!

    Remove all the target and tick-box culture in the public sector and bye bye to 1,000,000 admin wonks - cheaper to stick them on the dole or on X-factor.

    Pay it off in one lump sum from part of Jonathan Ross' salary.
