The Coalition government denies it, but the independent think-tank the IFS confirms it - the poor will be hardest hit by the massive cuts announced by the Con/Dem government.
I've said in an earlier post how worried I am that these cuts are going to trigger off a severe economic downturn, and I'm even more concerned now that this may happen. There is an alternative to these cuts, set out by Labour's new Shadow Chancellor in a speech earlier this week.
I am keen to know how the cuts will affect local people and community groups - you can post details here as a comment to this post if you like, or write or email me directly.
Meanwhile, even more reason to support the demonstration in Edinburgh against the cuts this Saturday 23 October.
