Osborne could have gone for the Finnish solution

The Chancellor has launched the ‘next stage in the government’s plan to fix the nation’s finances’, with the Chief Secretary has written to government departments asking them asking them to model two scenarios of 25% & 40% of savings within their resource budgets by 2019-20 (in real terms).  

Spending Review 2015: A country that lives within its means will be published on 25 November 2015 and will set out how the government will both invest in priority public services and deliver the £20bn further savings required to eliminate Britain’s deficit by 2019/2020.
