LAST WEEK'S letter about cuts the coalition government has to make because of the deficit of the last government does not add up.
When David Cameron was in opposition, he said he would match Labour's spending plans pound for pound.
In fact, he said Labour was not spending enough, in which case, had he been in power, the deficit would have been bigger.
He did not support Northern Rock or any of the other banks which got into severe financial trouble. Under him, you could have you put your card in the cash machine and no money would come out because all the banks would have collapsed, without government support.
He also opposed the minimum wage, saying thousands of jobs would be lost - but thousands of jobs were created. He got every call on the economy wrong, big time.
He then said on the TV debate that a coalition government would be a disaster and the following week jumped in to the bed with Nick Clegg to form a disaster.
Now he is increasing VAT to 20 per cent, which will hit everyone, and the poor and the vulnerable in particular.
We know you have to deal with a deficit, but that does not mean you can make bad policies and bad decisions.
We had a deficit in 1945 twice as large as that today. but we did not slash and burn. We went out and built the National Health Service.
Cameron says we are all in this together but none of his wealthy friends will be hit by cuts.
