Everybody knows that you can’t get a quart out of a pint pot and maybe the Tories need to take that on board. Cuts in government expenditure are good and Sir Philip Green has already discovered lots of potential savings in procurement.
If savings can be made through efficiency, that’s a good thing. However, if you have to cut budgets from schools, the health service, the roads and other essential areas and the infrastructure suffers there will be an impact on health and safety to the community.
Despite the need to watch the bottom line and I’m all in favour of making government processes more efficient, it is essential that continued investment in the infrastructure is made to keep the community safe.
If the Tories cut facilities to the bone, there could be an increase in fatalities and serious injuries. Without the resources to deal with their care in hospitals and doctor’s practices that’s going to be a very slippery slope.
