Someone who is /for/ the budgetary cuts proposed by the current British government.

Given that scissors have become a symbol of the cuts, the word 'snip' is a natural definition of someone who supports what it epitomises. It is also monosyllabic, as well as being homophonic and alliterative with its antonym, the 'sic', someone who is against the cuts.
Student #1: I've had it with these snips here. Don't they see what they're sayin-

Student #2: Oi - I'm a snip mate.

Student #1: What?! All this time I thought you were a sic!

Student #2: I was, but I changed my mind.

sic
Someone who is against the proposed cuts made by the current British government; applies to all sections of society in disagreement with the plans.

Abbreviated form of 'sicosnipophobic'; which is, according to the mockumentary "Rock, Paper, Scissors: The Way of the Tosser", is someone afraid of scissors.

This short form is appealing because it is monosyllabic, as well as being homophonic and alliterative with its opposite, a 'snip'; ie. someone who is /for/ the cuts. The scissors analogy fits as it has become a symbol of the proposed cuts to the budget.
Student #1: So, what to you think about this whole 'governmental budgeting' fiasco?

Student #2: What, me? Oh, I'm a sic here. A sic an' proud!

Student #1: Phew, thought you were a snip there.

Student #2: A snip? Don't be daft mate.

Student #1: Yeah, soz. Can't tell whose who sometimes..
