Gordon's crystal ball

Labour will "go on and win" the next general election but will Gordon!?!

"Look, what the people of Britain are concerned about is what is happening to their gas and electricity bills, what is happening to the oil price and the petrol price at the pumps." - Gordon Brown.

Why is nobody concerned about the amount of taxes they pay!?!

Because people are, frankly, dumb.

There is more opposition and whining about council tax (revenues £20 bn) or Inheritance Tax (£4 bn) than there is about VAT (£80 bn) or income tax/NI (£180 bn).

And El Gobbo has a point - oil prices are going down again and hopefully gas prices will follow.
