    Miliband gets one over on Osborne......

    Post by papa_umau on Fri 15 Feb 2013, 12:51 pm

    In a surprise move yesterday Ed Miliband promised that if Labour get back into power in 2015 they would re-introduce the ten pence rate of income tax, ( which he said "Gordon Brown has scrapped erroneously" ), and pay for this by introducing a "mansion tax" for people who own houses valued at more that two million pounds.

    It is said that Cameron and Osborne are furious about this one-up-man-ship as they had planned to introduce something similar in the next month coalition budget.

    Read more about this from the BBC HERE.

    Aye, that'll be right ! Evil or Very Mad

    I could never see the Tories introducing anything like that as if they did they would make enemies out of exactly the people that they usually fawn over.

    I am still looking forward to the next budget from Osborne as it is now getting very close to the time when they will want to start to please people that they don't normally try to please.

    I think there are a couple of budgets to go yet before they might start to do that Angie.

    Mind you, the future fortunes of this government, according to the opinion polls, is now so bad that Cameron and Osborne must be starting to panic about what they can possibly do to change this direction.

    Personally, I take great pleasure from watching them squirm on the hook of the bad opinion polls.

    That was one of the worst things that Gordon Brown did while he was Chancellor: dropping the ten-pence in the pound taxation-rate.

    It is great that Miliband sees this and is promising to return us to the status-quo.

    Give us more like that Ed !

    Even as a Socialist, I have to agree that you are right that that WAS one of the worst actions that Brown made during his last reign as Chancellor.
