Day 3167: There are men out there, young men, dying for it…


A pay rise, obviously.

Well, no, let's not be frivolous when there are good people genuinely putting their lives on the line for what we can at least HOPE is a good cause in Afghanistan.

But what this SHOULD show is an insight on New Liberal Democrat thinking: the idea being we can spend FAIRER and SMARTER without spending MORE. So here we make a new spending commitment that will be more FAIR than what Hard Labour are paying our troops, but we ALSO say where we will cut spending so that we don't increase the burden of debt.
