Cut to the chase

David Cameron has become a bit weary of the language of axe-wielding, budget-chopping government, and has decided on a change of direction.

Hoorah, that must mean the coalition’s cut agenda is off.

Except that it’s not.

But one thing that is off is the word ‘cut’. We won’t be hearing it as much from now on (well, from Cameron anyway) as he is rebranding it to ‘savings’.

Excellent stuff, that sounds much more palatable.
