Tough decisions on efficiencies?

Ed Balls wrote in the Independent this weekend about having to make "tough decisions on efficiencies and non-essential programmes".

What tough decisions need to be made about efficiencies? If something can be made more efficient then surely there's no decision to be made, and it certainly shouldn't be tough, just do it and save some money. Or is Mr Balls suggesting that just the idea of cutting spending is so out of character for  the current government that it is tough to do.

  1. I don't think Balls is "suggesting" efficiency is alien to this government, I think he's admitting it.
