It depends on the person and the kind of job satisfaction offered by a particular role. Surely the ideal scenario is to love what you do and get paid for it?

You can spin it any way you like, it will still look bad to most voters. And why give the other parties extra ammunition to throw at you?

Perhaps trevgo means that couples should only have children if they already have a stash of the cash required to feed and clothe them for the next 18 years? A highly realistic scenario, I'm sure.

I don't know, but I don't see how even more swingeing public spending cuts are likely to help economic growth, at least in the short term. That is the real risk to the recovery.
