I would balance the budget within 2 years. Here is how. Instead of raising foreign aid to £12 billion as is happening we could cut it to zero, leave the EU thus ending our contribution there, bring the troops home, leave NATO, end all spending on ...quango's (now over £100 billion), end immigration saving atleast £12 billion (knock on effects nearer £20 billion). Thats just off the top of my head. Of course a vast amount of other cuts could be found in the public sector in pee cee non-jobs like gay outreach workers, climate change officers, NHS media spokespersons etc.
