Even some Tories get it

Posted on

Even some Tories are beginning to realise how mad the cuts they are proposing are:

Liam Fox, the defence secretary, has launched a big assault on the Treasury’s attempt to slash his department’s budget, warning that “draconian” cuts to military spending cannot be implemented without “grave consequences” for the Conservative party and the government.

Defence is not my favourite budget.

Fox is far from my favourite politician.

But he gets it: the cuts are massively harmful.

And his government will fail because of them.

But only after the rest of us have suffered enormously as a consequence.
