10% tax rates

Haven't been blogging for a while due to the recent birth of my daughter.

I meant to blog last week about the evilness of the CBeebies controller in taking "In the Night Garden" out of the bedtime (and in the week when the clocks went forward as well - moron!)

However, the bigger bunch of morons are the Labour backbenchers. Have cheered and cheered when Gordon Brown announced the rate cut from 22% to 20% - they are now, a year later complaining about the fact he's partly funding it by abolishing the 10% band. So it was okay when it got good headlines last year, but now it's actually going to hurt people, they are complaining. Typical!

Um, as opposed to lamenting the good headlines and relishing the bad news. Would this meet your approval?

Congrats on the new arrival. Hope you are getting some sleep

Why did Gordon axe the 10p rate? Here is another reason and we all know Gordon likes to quietly kill several birds with one stone.
