Shadow cabinet ministers and Labour-supporting bloggers alike have become excited by this quote [below] from Tory minister Greg Barker, speaking in front of an American audience:
We are making cuts that Margaret Thatcher in the 1980s could only have dreamt of.
Greg Barker has let the cat out the bag about the ideological agenda behind this Tory-led government's deep cuts to public services.
Hmm. People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. The inconvenient truth is that Labour, thanks to the so-called Darling plan for deficit reduction, had also planned to go beyond Thatcher too - and were equally keen to "let the cat out of the bag".
