If I see the phrase ‘pro-cuts march’ one more time…
Which finally made me realise what it was that had been getting my goat about some of the media and other coverage of the Rally Against Debt. It was described as a ‘pro-government’ rally. But we weren’t.
Lets consider the positions of the two campaigns:
- Uk Uncut wants spending on services to increase.
- RAD wants spending to decrease so that we might begin to start reducing our National Debt.
Government spending is (as those who haven’t been blinded by the lies know) going up. Yes, spending on some services is coming down but total government spending will be higher in 2015 than it was in 2010.
On that basis, which campaign is ‘pro-government’?
