The article presents the opinion of John Philpott, chief economic adviser at Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), and Trades Union Congress (TUC) general secretary Brendan Barber on the impact of the move by the coalition government in Great Britain to implement drastic reduction in public spending to the industrial sector. Philpott claims that the move could result in mass-unemployment and social unrest just like in the 1980s. Barber says that the cutbacks could put the British economy in jeopardy.
