Get real on cuts

I cannot believe that some of our politicians still think that Northern Ireland should escape the spending cuts which must come soon.

We are part of the UK and must take our medicine like everyone else.

If we are treated differently, it is going to cause even more problems because many people in England already think that we receive far more grants from central Government than we should.

Our politicians must face up to the fact that we are in for years of hard times in Northern Ireland - as is all of the UK.
