Now we all know that cuts will come and they are essential, but the pile of Brownstuff has consitently "sought to contrast Labour's determination to boost investment in training with what he claims is a Tory agenda of cuts that would prolong the downturn." Tory cuts vs. Labour investment...I know you know and he knows we know but again and again in Parliament Brown has knowingly lied:
"while Brown and his ministers have suggested they are raising investment in training, skills and apprenticeships, behind the scenes they are preparing some £350m of cuts for 2010-11 that will slash the number of training places on offer by hundreds of thousands."
Empty rhetoric; I wouldn't mind betting the quaint Brownstuff already has soundbites prepared and written out for 2010 and 2011 when, presumably with a Conservative government, he can savagely decry their cuts...that he made. "What's particularly shocking about this document is that the bulk of the cuts are in front-line services" said Two Brains last night.
"Now more than ever is the time to invest in our young people, their skills and their talents in training them for the future."
