£35bn of Tory spending cuts.

The latest slanging match between Labour and the Tories over the amount of money that will be cut/not spent in six to seven years time seems a little theoretical and pointless to me. One interesting issue raised though is that if Tony Blair is to be believed (ha!!) then the £35bn of cuts would be "the equivalent of sacking every doctor, teacher and nurse in the country". Naturally, it makes me wonder where all the other money goes? Why does he never say that a £35bn reduction would mean cuts in benefits to the workshy?
