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.
