Redwood Corrects News Headlines. What Cuts?

He writes on his blog-

Public spending is to rise 10% in cash terms over 5 years:

2009-10 (Last Labour year) £669bn
2010-11 £697bn
2011-12 £700bn
2012-13 £711bn
2013-14 £722bn
2014-15 £737bn (£68bn or 10% above Labour level)

Who’d a thunk it? Conservatives. Cuts. Jam & Bread. Salt & Pepper. Laurel and Hardie.

Yet Thatcher increased spending continually throughout her Premiership. As will Cameron and Osborne. But myth rules the media.
