"Pretty scary reality," Connolly said. "We may not have a job and it's scary because there's no security."

..... It's a money thing. As long as there are too many loud voices refusing tax increases there must be cuts to at least try to balance the money intake with the spending of the government. As long as there are perennial deficits something has to be done.
..... As for the AVRO Arrow, that too apparently was a money problem causing Diefenbaker to put a stop to it.
