There were two excellent letters in the Lynn News, August 7, from Mary Urry and Penny Snape.

So true, when the Tories get in power, it is the poor who get the blame and the pain but the rich get wealthy and the gain. The economic mess was a global problem caused by the rich, the Tories’ cronies, the bankers. George Osborne is now selling off RBS shares one billion pounds under value. He did the same to Royal Mail. These are the same Tories who slated Gordon Brown for selling the gold cheaply. The Tories are always talking about saving money, so abolish the House of Lords, £300 a day jobs for the boys costs the tax payer £100 million a year. George Osborne plans 40 per cent cuts to the police, local councils and courts. Already 20,000 soldiers or 30,000 police have gone at a time when we are on our highest terrorist alert. The cutting, slashing and sell-offs affect everyone but the rich. The most sickening sight in the recent budget was seeing Ian Duncan Smith punching the air when Osborne announced more welfare cuts. This from a man who brought in the scandalous bedroom tax but opposed the mansion tax.
