The Government of the UK, the Conservative/LibDem coalition is about to embark upon a withering reduction in funding public services. Included in the list of targets is the Police. Included in this list of targets is defence. This does not bode well for bastions of the left: education and health.
The duty of a government is to protect the vulnerable. This government appears to distrust the public service, and distrust the public. It distrusts those who are employed to administer its laws. A state of seige exists with the government threatening economic mayhem on any and all but the bankers. A state of distruct exists. The agenda has been hidden from view. Once they have finished cutting away their control of the state, there will be little for Government to do. Is that their aim?
