The Labour supporting pundits who are wailing and shroud waving over who is going to be hurt by the new government's budget cuts are by and large the same people who cheered the massive expansion of public spending that has left us with a deficit so large that cuts are necessary.
Cuts are brutal, even when they are made in areas where the government shouldn't really have been spending that much they will cause real pain to the people employed there who are not personally to blame for the deficit.
However the likes of Polly Toynbee are like arsonist jeering at the fire brigade because they damage doors when they knock them down. They are at least partly responsible for the complete loss of fiscal discipline by the last government that have landed us in this situation.
