Op-Ed: Tory party leader and British Prime Minister David Cameron has been accused of hypocrisy after he sent a letter to his own constituency councillors condemning cuts to front-line services in the area; he could also be accused of stupidity, being out-of-touch with the real world and his party policies, arrogance, breeching parliamentary standards and code of practice and much more.
The letter was sent in September but only came to light late last week. It was published in the Oxford Mail which reported Wednesday that Cameron wrote to Mr Ian Hudspeth, Conservative leader of the authority saying "Witney MP Mr Cameron said he was also disappointed with other cuts proposed to elderly day centres and libraries and claimed Oxfordshire’s spending had actually increased over recent years."
The majority may only be 12 but it is enough to push through damaging cuts and policies.
When we wrote about the promise of free school meals for 5 to 7 year olds in September 2014 we were not universally in favour of the policy.
The way we viewed it with budget cuts running riot was that free school meals for 5 to 7 year olds was great but should be means tested.
As it stood Clegg's policy would mean that ALL kids in that age bracket would be eligible for free school meals-even children of well-paid celebrities or senior government ministers.
That just seemed daft.
Surely the money could be better spent, we asked.
But now it seems the truth is out and it appears allowing Clegg's key policy through the austerity net was simply to keep him on side.
It has not taken long for rumours of a U turn to surface.
Money and time has been invested in equipping schools for the challenges of free school meals for 5 to 7 year olds.
If Messrs Cameron and Osborne scrap the meals money will be wasted.
But more importantly children from some of the poorest families in the UK will lose out.
Surely means testing is the best way forward?
