"The collective wealth of Britain’s 1,000 richest people has increased by almost a third in the past year despite the uncertain economy, according to the Sunday Times Rich List 2010."

Thank you for that non sequitur, neatly eliding income with capital. Those richest people wouldn't be here for long if your donkey-jacketed colleagues like Bob Crow ever came to power, especially since most of that wealth is already overseas it can happen in the blink of an eye.

Spending this month was 10.9% higher than a year ago. So much for austerity! You will squeal even louder when real cuts start to bite and actually bring the deficit down.

Your remedies have been tried many times before and they have always failed. The onus is on you to explain why your high tax, high spending, high borrowing policies will have a different outcome this time.

And next year?

"He knows that the cuts will unfairly punish the poorest."

Since "the poor" were given unsustainable gifts by Gordon Brown, paid for with money borrowed from future generations, i fail to see how it is "unfair" that the recipients of Labour's largesse are the ones to lose when it inevitably comes to an end.
