Tory peer Lord young has incensed right minded folk up and down the UK with his insensitive comments. Apparently we're squeamish over a bit of straight talk which means politicians can't win. Either they're lying cheating scumbags or they're "insensitive" when they tell it how it is. Here's what he said; british homeowners have seen their mortgage repayments drop since the recession kicked in, well they have due to the zero interest rate policy. losing 100,000 jobs in a 30million job economy is little more than a statisitical error, again this is mathmatically correct as it amounts to about 0.3% of total jobs. Finally he claimed that angst over the Cuts was misguided, well as there aren't going to be any cuts -people are making up stuff about a structural deficit and a normal deficit to make it look the Tories are tackling the problem, there's only one deficit- he's correct, gov't spending is actually increasing year on year. The backlash says more about the public than it does about Lord Young, the government have bailed out every reckless individual and institution going but it's considered impolite to say so without mincing your words.
