The deficit should be the prime target

Is there a loss of nerve on getting the deficit sorted ?

David Cameron appears to be rowing backwards a little on the cuts on day one line.

He'd better not be. The only argument I'd accept for holding back on action once in office is taking the time to do the job properly. I.E. make the right cuts at the right level and the correct changes, which might take a few months to sort out. The sort of mad axeman stuff the socialists in Greece will soon have forced on them ( just as Labour have int he past by the IMF )will be both brutal, arbitrary and unnecessarily cruel due to the haste they will have to be applied in. There the sort of cuts we will get if the national disaster of Labour getting a fourth term happens.

But lets be clear - a reduced state has to come very soon, and it will be a good thing for most people.

There are only a handful of tasks that a PM could really set in motion on day one, but the process of identifying and scoping possible cuts should certainly start straight away.

Because of what is going on out there in the world there is not much time at all. Summer may be too late and events may take their course.
