The UK Budget

It was at least a Labour budget - not vindictive against the poor.

Sadly, I still think the Tories will win the next election, and I expect to see the sheer vindictiveness of that party on display. In terms of tax rates, the Lib Dem proposal to lift income taxes altogether from low paid workers was the best and should have been adopted.

Agreed, while it is of course getting talked down into the ground by the Tories ('Gloating' Dale and his like) it seems like there may be some promise. Of those rubbishing the figures, if anything like does happen don't expect them to say Darling was right all along.
I haven't seen the details yet, but once i look into the detail, i'm quietly hopeful i'll like it.
I like the top rate tax rise, of course.

Very much agree with the Lib Dem proposals though to move the tax burden
