David Cameron commits Tory party to public spending cuts

As David Cameron sees his near 20 point gain in the polls reduced to just 3 points he has attempted to put some clear space between the Conservative party and the government. Today the Tory party ripped up an earlier pledge to match Labour party public spending plans suggesting that the economy was not able to support such action. The move to a no tax cut regime is something of a turn-up for the Conservatives as this is the party of tax cuts.

Gordon Brown has played a very clever game of late attempting to appease his own party, attract the disenfranchised Labour voters and claim the middle ground in the UK voting spectrum. It now depends on whether David Cameron can argue that cost-cutting is essential to get the UK back on track with sufficient force as to grab the attention of the UK consumer.

This is turning into something of a mammoth battle between David Cameron and Gordon Brown and at the moment you have to save that Gordon Brown is on the up while David Cameron struggles to retain his position. It will be interesting to see how the Labour Party tax cuts are received next week in the prebudget announcement.
