Howard Flight has done the country a favour by being an unwitting whistleblower on the scale of cuts being planned by the Tories. It is unfortunate for him that he has been fired by Michael Howard and de-selected by his constituency party already. All he did was tell the truth! The 21st Century Tory party moves fast.
The gap between Labour and Tory spending plans is already a chasm. More money needed in the NHS to treat an ageing population, in schools to provide pre-school and after-school clubs and to provide sufficient neighbourhood policing teams. Tory cuts will mean an end many front line services. Mr Flight will have opened many eyes.
