Smiling Brown gets rather annoyed with Nick Robinson. The fun starts about 1 min 30 sec in:
I have always told the truth. I have always told people as it is. I have explained we have a deficit reduction plan for the future. But you cannot do that without growth and employment in your economy.
The honest thing to do is to say we have to get back to growth and jobs. The dishonest thing is to say this will happen without taking any action at all.
Whatever Brown said to Nick Robinson he still isn't telling the truth. The cuts have already started. Student grants have been frozen grants and financial support for trainee teachers has been cut. There are also large cuts to be made in major transport projects.
Not flash. Just not the whole truth.
