500,000 people marched today against the coalition government's austerity measures, with the support of the majority of the population.
The March, called by the Trades Union Congress (TUC) was the biggest demonstration since the 2003 anti-war protest.
On the eve of the demonstration a ComRes/ ITV News poll shows that two thirds of the public feel that the Government should reconsider its cuts programme
Following Chancellor George Osborne’s Budget statement earlier this week, the latest Cuts Index conducted by ComRes and to be broadcast on ITV News at Ten, shows that two thirds (64%) of the public agree that the Government should reconsider its planned spending cuts programme. Just one in five (20%) disagree.
Since the Cuts Index began, the number of people who agree that the coalition Government is cutting public spending too much and too quickly has risen from 45% last October to 58% this week.
A YouGov poll out later today will also show 52% back aims of March for the Alternative to 32% against.
