Not that I own a purse with strings you understand. This week the UK Government have announced cuts and lots of them. As a Nation we owe a lot of money. The good times are about to stop rolling it would appear. I have tried to find out what the cuts mean for me and my family budget but can't make sense of the specifics.
However, I realise that I don't fall into any category of thinking on this subject. I think that we all need to accept the cuts. For instance, Welfare will be seriously hit. I am in agreement if the person could find another way of making their money, if they see benefits as a way of income for no valid reason etc. I am not in favour of drawing benefits for life and believe in constant review. I have seen too many people claim benefits for the most flimsy of reasons. And then I hear (anecdotally) of the 73 year old lady who cares for her 40-something son. He can't work due to a stroke a few years ago. They are not entitled to any help at all. Not a penny. He has paid tax and National Insurance for years. So I am in favour of a complete overhaul of our Welfare system.
I also like the idea of this.
Surely, both aspects of cuts are needed to reduce the debt that this country is in?
