Sorry about this, but, there's no money. It's a bugger, I know, but you remember when the Government told us there was free money to spend on anything and everything, and you believed them, and voted for it, and decided that everlasting free money and free everything and council houses for life and cheap hospitals and disability allowances for your sore thumb and equality consultancies and quangos to help unfettered immigration and it all made you feel so good that we were one of the most liberal countries in Europe?
It turns out, the money was not free after all. You have to pay it back, which I think goes against your human rights, but there you go.
Sooner or later, voters must take responsibility for their little black crosses. (Those who ticked the box marked "free money forever" appear to be whining loudest right now.)

The true cost of Labour's lies and spin is going to hit every one of us. I can see it in the astronomical rise in bills for the last year. It is going to get a lot worse before it gets better. People are going to lose jobs. Lifestyles will change. Families will come under enormous stress. It is not going to be nice.
