LESS than 10 per cent of voters back George Osborne’s plan to keep slashing public spending to achieve a budget surplus.

A poll published by last night’s Evening Standard found 27 per cent of the public believe all cuts should “stop now” and a further 30 per cent want the Chancellor to ease off austerity in next month’s Budget.

Asked for their economic priorities, one-third of adults said they want to see more money spent on public services.

That dwarfed the 9 per cent who said achieving a surplus should be Mr Osborne’s primary concern.

Even among Tory voters, support for public spending was higher than that for achieving a budget surplus at all costs.

BMG pollster Michael Turner said: “Mr Osborne in particular, should note that 38 per cent of those who are undecided about how they would vote at a general election also support increased spending on public services.”
