Good afternoon,

Here is a short-list of what has been (or will be) chopped: (figures and quotes from the BBC)

* Police spending down by 4% each year of the spending settlement

* The Department for International Development's budget will rise to £11.5bn over the next four years, reaching 0.7% of national income in 2013.

* Plans for a 1,500 place new prison have been dropped

* The MoD is facing cuts of 8%

* The BBC has been told it must freeze the licence fee for six years. 16% cut in the BBC's budget in real terms.

* Retirement age to rise from 65 to 66 by 2020

What kind of Britain does this shape us up for over the next 4 years?

Same as Sooper. I too am a system analyst for a unitary authority in my lunch hour. AOG, I have to disagree with you on this one. The vast majority of public centre workers are normal people on low wages who took the jobs for the security. In my experience the high wage earners are few and far between when you take into account the number of cleaners, dinner ladies, street sweepers, etc. that the Councils employ.
