And some fell on stony ground…

Hey guess what?

I’ve just received an e-mail from Gideon giving what might loosely be called his ‘thoughts’ on today’s budget…

This is a bad news Budget. Alistair Darling is kicking Britain’s families when they are down.

– Darling has added £110 a year to every family’s tax bill. The tax take will be £2.8bn a year higher by 2010 – and if benefits are excluded, it will be £4bn higher.

– The new taxes announced in the budget will add up to £1.5bn extra on all alcoholic drinks, £1.6bn on drivers, and £1.7bn on businesses over the next three years.

Mmm… I don’t drink (very much), use public transport and don’t run my own business, so I guess my considered response will have to be…

…fuck off, you muppet.

  • This wouldn’t be the same Gideon advocating a tax hike for the booze which he doesn’t much care but that the lower orders do, would it? Surely not.
