"Pay and bonus deals equivalent to 10% of US government bail-out package"
simon : ..."As we reported on Friday, Mr Brown has promised to maintain his spending pledges on capital projects and public services. This is despite the fact that the economic prospects predicted at the time these pledges were made are now fantasy. Growth is non-existent, tax revenues are tumbling, borrowing is ballooning, yet Mr Brown thinks it is business as usual.
I have quoted Jim Callaghan before and, for Mr Brown's edification if no one else's, I do so again: you can't spend your way out of a recession.
Mr Brown thinks he knows better. Having also borrowed money to bail out the banks - and who is to say that will work, or that more banks might not need assistance? - the total borrowing this year is predicted to be £90 billion- £100 billion.
Given how wildly inaccurate most earlier predictions have been, we can assume that is a conservative estimate. Mr Brown has learned nothing. The debt will take generations to pay off. I hope our grandchildren will be grateful for this unwarranted imposition on them...."Telegraph
