What a surprise. The tax rebels win.

It seems that GordoDarling is looking at measures to compensate people who lost out over the abolition of the 10p rate. Read here. It appears that the rebels must have had a few tricks up their sleeves and we know Gordo doesn't exact shy away from a fight. It's more of a trot or a jog as a run is out of the question however it is still his max speed. He folded on this one quicker than I thought as well. It seems that Herr Dr Reid must have fully retired and couldn't be bribedpersuaded to help out. It's being announced now although it won't actually pay anything back until the Autumn although it will theoretically be backdated to April.

Now let me think. Why such a vague statement very very short on facts? Just compensation and in the future as well. Well we can trust them can't we? After all why would they lie? Could it be the polls that are on the 1st May? That seems an important date to the rebels and the announcement came just in time for that. Jolly good timing and how coincidental.

However, I'm of the opinion that come Autumn it will be worked out that we can't afford it or it will be based on a replacement tax of some sort that will be just as bad and as there are no polls around that time the current bunch of rebels will suddenly find they are OK with whatever is proposed. The useless shower of b45^4rds,

I wonder how many people are so thick they will fall for this? After all if an election promise of an EU referendum can safely and legally be ignored, read here, what value can be put on a vague statement like that from a bunch of proven liars?

Henry, Good post. I just find the whole debacle hypocritical. I've my fingers crossed for a total rout but so far the population in the UK has repeatably disappointed me. Could this be the time?

James, You are a cynic. Our lords and masters anly mean the best for us. Here is hoping for an exciting, relativly speaking, time on election day.
