Newsnight last night and an hilarious interview with Ed Balls. The Government are going to cut back the regional development agencies that spend so much for so little. In these recessionary times surely these are very close to the top of the list of things not needed.
Still, all of this is well beyond the denial bubble of Labour. Still strong in their mantra, as Guido pointed out yesterday of David Milliband, that cuts are wrong, spending is right and the state is the only thing keeping us together.
It could not be more wrong, the state is what has delivered unto us huge debts. Personal debts are our own fault, national debts is someone else's burden inflicted upon us. A real retrenchment is here but Labour see only a utopia where the money is endless for its client state voters and there is no cost. They see value, but not the price. It proves once and for all that the delusion was not just Gordon Brown, but the whole Labour party.
