Spending Cuts: Unnecessary but we Want Them

YouGov has done some polling about the spending cuts.  It’s very confusing.  Overall, public spending is rising slightly in cash terms, so there are only cuts to individual programmes.  I’m not sure people understand that.  Back to the polling about the non-existent cut…

A majority think that the cuts are unfair, too fast, too deep, and not good for the economy.  A majority also think that the cuts are necessary.  More people trust the coalition to make the right decisions about the deficit than Labour.

Some people seem very confused!
