So was this thread a promotion of austerity? Assuming Blighter doesn't want the debt to go up?

Living within your means doesn't mean austerity We've had this argument before

Austerity in the widely used vernacular just means cuts TBH.

Just becuase it has recently become fashionable to completely subvert a word's true meaning doesn't mean you have to go along with it.

Deficit spending is not austerity.

Up is not down.

Black is not white.

2 + 2 is not 5.

If you've read or understand 1984 you'll realise that the way the word austerity is used today is classic doublespeak.

What we have now isn't austerity, austerity light maybe.

You can quibble over semantics but that doesn't change the fact we have seen public investment halved and significantly damaged the economy in the process whilst the deficit hasn't moved for more than 12 months

It isn't semantics, it's fact. You can't see the wood for the trees unfortunately. Anyone who thinks we have austerity is letting someone else do their THINKING for them.
