70% of public think Government is cutting too much
A quick plug for some interesting Ipsos MORI polling conducted for the Economist ahead of next Wednesday’s Budget. Covered in the Times (paywall), the polling found that 70 per cent of respondents think the Government is cutting too fast, only three in ten think the Government has got the balance between cuts and tax rises right, and 70 per cent think the poor will be hardest hit.
Nigel has been tracking the YouGov polling on the cuts for a few months now, most recently on False Economy and will continue to do so. The Ipsos MORI poll is very much in line with the trends shown by the YouGov data, showing widespread concern about the speed, depth and unfairness of the cuts.
