The year in cuts | The Spectator.

The Spectator looks forward to 19% cuts in government spending...

You have to wonder what sort of warped mindset thinks that devastating the economy by destroying the welfare of those in need of support, undermining education, denying healthcare to many, cutting demand for much of the private sector (so much of which is dependent on the state as a major customer, directly and indirectly) and crushing all hope of future investment would achieve.

Is it that they feel so secure in their privilege that they feel invulnerable?

I find it hard to explain their thinking in any other way.
