Why cuts are not necessaryCuts to public services and jobs are not necesary. The deficit that so many politicians (disgracefully including many in the Labour party) seem to think justifies these ideologically motivated cuts is moderate by historical standards. There is a £120 billion tax gap of evaded, avoided and uncollected tax. People and corporations are still making huge profits and bonuses, even despite the financial crisis and recession that their actions caused. Corporate tax before the election was 28% on profits above £1.5m, compared to the 32.8% G7 average. The new government is planning on lowering it to 24%,(indicating that we are really not 'all in this together')
