Spending Review: The devil in the detail
I'm just beginning to dig thought the detailed briefings supplied by government departments and will post details as I get them.
Here's the first - there'll be 3,000 fewer prisoners in four years time than there are now.
And the second - rail fares up 3% more than RPI inflation from 2012.
And the third - council tax benefit down by 10% and councils able to decide who gets it.
And the fourth - 40% cut in higher education.
And the fifth - flood defences cut by 15%.
And sixthly - Sport England and UK Sport cut by 30%.
That's just spinning through what the government is choosing to highlight but gives an indication of what else will be unearthed in the paperwork in the weeks, months and indeed years to come.
