Gordon Brown finally admits Labour will cut investment in public services

After months of a phoney war with the Conservative party Gordon Brown has finally admitted that he will be forced to cut investment in public services for the first time under his tenure. This is a major U-turn for Gordon Brown, with rumours that Lord Mandelson and Alistair Darling have been pushing him for months, and an embarrassment for the UK government. Hoping to separate the Labour Party and the Conservatives by an ongoing investment into public services, this particular strategy for the general election has been blown out of the water.

While Gordon Brown now promises he will maintain investment in mainstream public services there is a growing disbelief amongst UK voters and the impression that he is beginning to become untrustworthy. We have seen more U-turns over the last 12 months than over the prior nine years all of which have been forced on the government by Gordon Brown's stubbornness and inability to read the public perception of his party.

It will be interesting to see how the Conservative party now plays this particular game because we are talking about potential investment cuts of billions upon billions of pounds which surprisingly have received a positive response from UK voters. Has Gordon Brown left it too late to change his policy?
