What to cut?
If you don't like the sound of cutting spending in the Home Office or the Department for Transport by a quarter how about bigger cuts to welfare spending? That's the choice posed by the chancellor this morning.
It's a choice which his critics will reject. They will point out that the decision to add £49 billion to Labour's deficit reduction plan was not "unavoidable" - George Osborne could have done less.
They'll point out that the mix - £32bn spending cuts and £8bn tax rises was not "unavoidable". It would have been possible to tax more and cut less. And they'll point out that the choice of a rise in VAT was not "unavoidable".
The coalition racked up bills by cutting Labour's planned National Insurance rise, increasing personal tax allowances, protecting the budgets for health and international development and limiting the rise in capital gains tax and the banks levy.
However, it is the coalition's aim to get people engaged with making choices rather than debating their strategy. That is why, I assume, they have agreed that the prime minister and his deputy will face questioning by an audience together this afternoon.
Feel free to suggest anything you think I should ask them.
