Cuts and leaks

• Yet again someone makes a choice to 'leak' a proposed Budget cut from some 'expert group' to gauge the reaction.

Well, I hope the reaction is swift and angry, because it is safe to assume no one on the expert group is themselves in receipt of the allowance they are seeking to cut.

Isn't it amazing how such expert groups never mention how money could be saved by cutting political expenses, or cutting pensions to former office holders, or cutting the cost of paying pension tax relief to people and corporate firms who still have the luxury of having a pension?
