Deficit reduction plan is long, slow and painful

Mark Littlewood appears on BBC R5 Breakfast

Mark Littlewood appeared on Radio 5 Live to discuss the Budget.

Mr Littlewood argued that the Government has not cut spending enough. Despite Osborne's initial plans, the Government will spend approximately £100bn more than it brings in. Over the course of this Parliament, the size of the on-balance sheet national debt will in fact double.

Mr Littlewood stated that there are two courses of action available to get the deficit under control: a swift and dramatic course or a long, slow and painful one. Osborne, unfortunately is taking the latter.
