If "austerity measures" to a degree are needed (and maybe they are/were), I wouldn't be so upset. Nobody really wants to live beyond their means.

When austerity starts to come about/is used as an justification for cost (and quality, and staff) cutting, at the same time as significantly wasteful practices are occurring, that's what rips my wicket.
