Budget thoughts
The interesting thing about the reaction to the recent budget on the estates is that there is no reaction: nobody seems to care. We are told that the budget will hurt the poorest, but just how true is that claim? Housing benefit is to be capped at some point in the future and also at some future point the people claiming invalidity benefit may have to see a doctor more often to be assessed for work, but other than that nothing has really changed. The working poor will see their incomes increase with the rise in tax thresholds, which is something that most normal people will support.

Frankly, this is not a budget that the working man is going to get tied into knots over.

Probably due for another 17 years of Tory rule, then?

18 years, but never mind. And could very well be. However, unlike the maggot there is nothing to actually hate about this lot. As for Nu-Labour, I am just glad that the fuckers are out.
