Not exactly true. More austerity and there would be potentially less investment, less money making from business growth, fewer people in jobs returning taxes to government and fewer people spending money to make businesses a success etc.

Spain and Italy are terrible examples of countries that had Austerity in Spain's case they've had a leftist governemnt that's hardly cut. What cuts to public spending have Italy carried out.

Ireland have recovered , they to the country's credit in acted serious austerity and quickly.

The home ownership thing is bizarre - we spent years complaining that British people were too obsessed with buying homes and should rent more like Europeans, now that we are it's suddenly become a national crisis of not enough home ownership

Home ownership is overrated - it locks people into geographies for generations and hampers economic mobility

Eh? Italy cut 100 billion in 3 years. Spain cut 27 billion alone in 2012. That is more cuts then any year the UK has impliemented austerity. And either way those cuts aren't responsible for he poor economic growth

But in your mind basically countries which have had massive cuts to public spending didn't really cut because they are in the shitter? :lol: FFS! Stop this idealogical bollocks. Governments should spend wisely, but capital spending and investment in jobs is a way to run countries sensibly and even allowing more scope for sensible spending because they bring in bigger returns in th medium and long terms.

Nah. Stupid pro-EU lefties and the usual anti-tories complained in their Guardian or wherever opinion pieces. The general public have always wanted to own their home.

Also in this day and age I don't think home ownership locks anyone into geographies, people sell or commute. Home ownership in the South East isn't going to hamper any economic mobility.

Also it possible with ever crappier pensions, home ownership is even more essential for old age financial support.

I've seen numbers done for the US housing market which show that home ownership, once you factor in the various purchasing and registration costs plus annual upkeep costs and any incremental home investments, is not any better financially than sticking the same lump-sum deposit amount into a stock market that (on average) has returned 6-7% a year historically and renting instead

Check my post, check out the 100 "billion" in Italy ? Or the context of 2012 Spanish cuts (as a blip in ever increasing spending).

Don't mosprepresent what I've said about the UK , we haven't had Austerity we have had a slow down in the increase in cash spending. Ireland didnt they had immediate and savage cuts.

But we have. The UKs finances have specifically been altered to move away from the deficit. That is austerity, there doesn't have to be cuts, however there clearly has been.

As for your "mosrepresent whatI've said" comment, don't be a fool, in the context of the discussion and you opposing my points on the matter your comments had only one meaning, one you've made many times over the years. Don't pretend otherwise or that I'm miss-representing your position.

We haven't cut spending in cash terms, we restricted rises , that isn't the same as a 25% cut in spending as per Ireland.

Have you checked the 100 billion of Italian cuts yet ?

Lots of spending has been cut. The civil service for one. If you didn't notice. One of Osbourne's tricks was to pass off many of the real cuts to local authorities, hence closure of stuff like sure start centers.

And there is no point debating with you about the Italian cuts given you deny them despite posting a link that shows a graph that when switched to 10 yrs shows a massive cut in Italian government spending between 2010 and 2014.

What the hell am I supposed to debate you when you provide the evidence for me.

Correct me if I'm wrong but the measure is total spending not whether one programme or another was cut or had reduced funding. That probably happens every year and is not austerity.

You need to distinguish between cuts (total goes down) and restricted rises (total doesn't go up or only goes up a little). Both may have a negative impact in real terms but they are different processes.

If austerity is

Quote:
a political-economic term referring to policies that aim to reduce government budget deficits through spending cuts, tax increases, or a combination of both


https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Austerity

then it is explicitly about cuts and not restricted rises.

Is that ballpark?

I wonder if whichever of the Labour Home Secretaries who approved this is a) feeling awful at not having warned their leader or b) laughing their head off?
