NotesNews: "Government spending cuts will have to go on until the end of the decade, David Cameron warned yesterday, as economic turmoil continues to blight the British economy. ... After winning the general election in 2010, the Coalition initially said that its austerity programme would finish by 2015. However in the budget George Osborne suggested the programme would have to be extended to 2017 and Mr Cameron now faces the prospect of fighting the next election with a pledge to cut spending for another five years. He said: "We are in a very difficult situation. There is some good news, we've just seen inflation fall again. "But, I don't deny for a minute that it is a lot tougher than the forecasters were expecting. I think the impairment to our economy in the bad years, the damage done to the banks, the indebtedness of our households, the extent of government debt, the extent of the whole growth model was unbalanced. You know, that impairment has been greater, it's been tougher to recover." .... " Oliver Wright, The Independent
