Response to the Budget

Once again, the signal goes out that only morons work hard or save money. It is far better to be a burden on the state than try to improve your lot in life. Want a lifestyle choice, choose benefits, choose children, choose a free life. Let others pay for your council tax, pay for your rent, pay for your furniture, pay for your prescriptions. I just wish my careers advisor had been better informed!!

On the BBC website, the reaction seems somewhat muted from around the country. 70% of voters think Gordon didn't get the budget right whilst most comments are rather hostile. I pity the poor Labour canvassers doing the rounds in coming months!!

One of the few winners must be Gordon himself, who can now look forward to earning the first £21k of his salary tax free thanks to the effect of child tax free credits.
