Action against austerity is stepping up

The Tory government elected eight weeks ago is facing greater opposition than the previous coalition encountered. Attitudes to austerity have hardened up over time, with support for public spending cuts having declined. For example Ashcroft’s 7 May poll found that 54 per cent of voters did not agree that spending cuts need to continue through this parliament.
