The current propaganda being pedaled by the government, and backed by the media, is a cover to strip back Labour's investment in public services over the last 12 years.
It's not about debt, it's about an agenda to bring about conservative ideals and the small minded attitudes of the blue rinse brigade.
Academy schools =non-state run education.
Council cuts=promotion of private tendering of services.
Increasing University loans=ending of the 'soft' academic degrees such as '.ologies'.
Public pensions=boosting the private finance pensions that have so poorly performed over the last 20 years.
Yet as we see in the failure of the 'bonfire of the quangos' - the governments high minded rhetoric is ill-conceived and short sighted - it's harder to build than it is to destroy.
