Attorney General: cuts to legal aid will force people to represent themselves in court
The coalition's strategists will soon be able to gauge whether people will accept cuts to valued projects in
their communities because they accept painful cuts are necessary. Or whether the fires of local protest
are about to be ignited.
The coalition's spending cuts will hit the poorest in society 10 times harder than the richest as the health,
social and education services they rely on are slashed.
The government has been threatened with legal action if it presses ahead with plans to make cuts to

31,000 people, the reality of privatisation is clear.
From "compassionate Conservative to growth rainmaker" to state-shrinker, Cameron has gone through a huge change since 2005. But that is nothing like what lies ahead for the rest of Britain in the next five years. Prepare yourself for welfare to be downsized into American-style workfare, for public-sector jobs to be turned into a second-class employment and for services, from school to healthcare, to demand that users pay more to get something decent. The future is American.
We face the biggest attack in a generation on public services, pensions, the NHS, education, benefits, jobs. Virtually every aspect of society is being affected by the governments austerity measures and over 80% of cuts are yet to be implemented.
