Gordon Brown had promised to cut more than 70,000 civil service jobs
In a damning report, the National Audit Office (NAO) said that billions of pounds of savings trumpeted by ministers may be "substantially wrong".

Surprised? You mean you hadn't noticed the incredible shrinking state, bureaucrats out on the streets flogging the Big Issue, taxes coming down, red tape being shredded? No, I had missed the signs of genuine cuts as well....
