Gates of Vienna News Feed 10/24/2010

Gates of Vienna News Feed 10/24/2010The British government is proposing to institute draconian spending cuts to cope with the country’s out-of-control budget deficit. Critics say the cuts are way too big, and may throw the country into a depression. The pound is predicted to fall against other currencies in reaction to the new policies.

In other news, a 73-year-old man in Georgia was stung to death by killer bees.

There really are no cuts at all,meerly a re-arranging of the financial furniture,and overall spending is going up not down,robbing peter to pay paul is the entire extent of their imagination,but it seems as long as we still fund indias space programme everything is fine,we have aircraft carriers with no aircraft,so our lords intend to allow the french to utilise them with thier aircraft,the only problem is ,what do we do when the french surrender?
