That’s the Guardian headline. It is designed to give the Tories political momentum, but is late and over budget.  The Treasury is resigned to the programme costing money rather than providing savings. The LibDems won’t have a bar of it. Critics describe it as “pitch-rolling”, preparing the ground for further “reforms”.

More like spin-bowling here.

    Cameron Camoron is in deep trouble with expo says on the murdoch media scandal, now the tax dodging mates scandal.
    Clegg is tiring of being associated with him as they have lost a lot of support .
    Local council elections have decimated the LDs and the tories.
    So Camoron is wheeling out some bene bashing to silence the majority.
    Conmankey follows suit.
    No plan for job just blame the peasants.
