A Budget full of bad news
12/03/2008 22:58:00

Today the Chancellor had a chance to help people out. It looks like we may be in for some difficult times but instead of easing the burden on people to help them cope he increased taxes yet again - by £110 for the average family. The Government should have used the good times we have enjoyed in recent years to put some money aside for a rainy day like this but instead they let borrowing get out of control. Now we’re going to have to pay the price. If you’re interested there’s some excellent detailed coverage of the Budget here.

Commenting on my blog

I welcome readers' comments on my blog. Unfortunately, sometimes people go too far and use blog sites to post comments which are abusive or defamatory to third parties. For this reason, your comments, posted using the form on this page, don't appear until they have been moderated, to make sure that they don't cross that line.

My policy is that I will always let comments appear from people who disagree with me, in a spirit of promoting reasoned debate. However, I will not allow comments to be posted which are defamatory to someone else, or which are racist, sexist, homophobic or otherwise likely to fail a 'public decency' test.

Consequently, there may be some hours delay after you post your comment until it appears on the public pages.
