Counting the Cuts – Report Published: Nick Clegg and David Cameron's austerity cuts have deliberately targeted people who are already disadvantaged

Counting the Cuts is a new report by Dr Simon Duffy, Director of the Centre for Welfare Reform. The report is based on analysis of the latest statistics from the Government.


There have been large cuts in public spending, and these cuts have targeted on people who are already disadvantaged.


1/ People on low incomes face cuts twice as large as average


2/ Disabled people on low incomes face cuts four times larger than average


3/ People who need help form social services face cuts six times greater than the average

The data and the calculations are published online here: http://bit.ly/cuts-data

The author of the report, Dr Simon Duffy said:

“It is shocking to discover how unfairly these cuts have been
distributed. Our sense of fair play seems to have vanished. Even more
worrying has been the effort to disguise these cuts by the use of
shameful rhetoric, directed at disabled people and other minority
groups. This is a very worrying time for democracy in the UK.”
