Will growing public-sector expenditure be Gordon Brown's downfall?

As Gordon Brown fires the gun for a four-week period in the run-up to the next general election there is growing concern within the Labour Party ranks that ever-growing expenditure in the public-sector could be Gordon Brown's downfall. The Conservative party and the CBI have over last few days highlighted the massive increase in taxpayer expenditure in this area of government.

We have seen suggestions of a £1 trillion public-sector pension fund deficit which will need to be funded by UK taxpayers and it looks as though Gordon Brown is determined to spend, spend, spend on the public-sector - at least in the short-term. There is growing concern amongst UK taxpayers with regards to the burden of the public-sector and this is something that the Conservative party has tuned into.

It would seem as though the Labour Party is taking on a very high risk and a very high-profile strategy which will see UK voters either voting in favour of greater tax funded public-sector spending or voting in favour of cuts. The choice for UK voters is now very stark and while there are concerns, this could either prove to be an excellent move by Gordon Brown or political suicide.
