The right sort of cuts

David Blackburn at Coffee House highlights moves by No 10 to stop any repeat of the milk snatcher fiasco at the weekend. Apparently, ministers need to be careful to avoid any cuts that might upset the media, rather than worrying whether their cuts will damage vital and successful programmes, many of which have already faced the axe. Who said the age of spin was dead?

The whole thing was ridiculous, wasn't it? Could have saved £60m and used it more wisely. All a bit depressing. (Hope you enjoyed Italy by the way!)
