Desperate measures.

The Government has turned to desperate measures now. The Crewe and Nantwich by election must be really important for them. Barely a few months since the budget and a few weeks after the disastrous local elections they have announced a bribecompensation package for all basic rate tax payers. Read here.

Of course having no money means that they have had to borrow money to make they payment but the payments will be after the by election so it won't hurt anyone during that critical time.

The only question is will it be enough? Will be British electorate, in Crewe and Nantwich anyway, be so stupid as to fall for it? One thing to be considered is that Crewe and Nantwich is a Labour stronghold and that this bribecompensation package will have been targeted at getting to most of the people there. Will that fact coupled with their natural tendency to vote Labour anyway make the difference?

I certainly hope not. Fingers crossed.
