UK budget

Today Broon delivered the 2007 budget. Listening to the news, it seems like mostly a nullity: just about everyone has had some taxes raised and others lowered (though we may gain a few hundred from tax changes). Fiddling because you need to be seen to be doing something; and aimed more at looking good and making the opposition look bad. Oh dear, its not promising.

This has nowt to do with climate (and so does the budget, just about).

    I thought simplifying the bands getting rid of the 10% band that he introduced did sound promising but there does seem as if there was a bit of the ‘looking good and making the opposition look bad’ about it.
