Exchequer figures truly frightening

Sir -- The exchequer returns for the first quarter of 2011 are truly frightening.
In spite of the cuts, levies and taxes, the current account deficit is more than €1bn worse than the same period last year.
By refusing to slash the €20bn public sector wage bill and the €20bn welfare bill our government is determined to dig the deficit hole deeper.
