UK Growth Lower Than Expected





Poor old Alistair Darling, I wonder if he's glad he got handed the poison chalice of stewardship of an economy in decline? In his first budget as Chancellor of the Exchequer, he had to announce lower than expected projected growth, so perhaps he needs a new suit to fit this change?

He can buy a suit with my taxes he's nicked off me.

I wouldn't mind paying the taxes if they went on something worthwhile.

Pretty much a non-event in the end, wasn't it? But that's 'New Labour' for you, always hoping that if they do nothing about the big issues the problems will just go away well before the next election, and we'll all have forgotten.

When I was younger I recall my Dad insisting that politicians were all the same - I'm afraid they really are these days.
