Slash benefits or reduce armed forces?

Presuming that we should continue to make further cuts...


Mr Hammond said a number of Conservative cabinet ministers believed "that we have to look at the welfare budget again... if we are going to get control of public spending on a sustainable basis".

BBC defence correspondent Jonathan Beale says that, because Mr Hammond and other Tory ministers want a greater proportion of savings to come from the welfare budget, they are on a collision course with their Liberal Democrat partners.

Which would you cut?

As John has so concisely put it. If we (royal we, here) kept our nose out of foreign affairs we'd be far better off. Yes, we should be prepared to assist any country who requests it, but only enough to let them stand on their own feet. That may create a stream of refugees into neighbouring countries, who could also ask for assistance, with the same response.
