JUST AS AT THE END OF THE COLD WAR...:

David Cameron writes for NOTW (David Cameron, May 22, 2010, News of the World)

Nick Clegg and I are agreed on this: Having a strong, united Government to lead this country is absolutely crucial, especially with the big problems we face today.

Labour have left a catastrophic legacy. They used up the Government cheque book, maxed out the country’s credit card and left us deep in debt.

But there’s been no apology. No shame. No sign that they have the faintest idea of what a mess they made or how angry people are. Worse still they’re making a joke out of it. On the first day in the Treasury one of our new Cabinet Ministers found a letter on his desk from the old lot.

It said: “I’m afraid to tell you there’s no money left... Good luck!” It’s like someone trashing your house then sticking a Post-it on the fridge making fun of it.

But after the anger has got to come the clean-up operation. Our new Government is doing what News of the World readers expect us to do — sorting out public spending.


...so here, at the end of the WoT, the GOP can run on the Perot message of cutting government spending. The public is eager for it.
