150113camerontaxcuts

This article is highlighted more for the image, which puts the point across more than anything else: after it was made clear that the Conservative-led Coalition would cut the deficit using a mixture of tax rises and spending cuts, Cameron went back on that by offering huge tax cuts to his rich and corporate friends, while forcing huge spending cuts on the workers and the poor.

The RealFare article, from which the image is taken, quotes a George Monbiot article from 2011 which set the scene for what has happened since.
