The 326 page Budget

Gordon Brown's (probably) last Budget speech lasted approximately 50 minutes. You can read all about the headline stuff on the BBC. You can also download the entire Budget document here. It's 326 pages long, which, if he was telling us everything it would mean he covered 7 pages a minute, something tells me the devil will be in the detail (and hell) of reading.

Here's a quote from the budget that really gets my ghost up!

'Higher tax allowances on their own benefit the richest most, and cannot reduce tax liability below zero.'

Hiher tax allowances benefit the rich most, what tosh! It goes on:

'Tax credits can tailor support to family circumstances, including number of children, childcare costs or disability.'

On other words it's not enough that I already pay for everyone else to have their kids educated, I 've go to fork out for their trainers and CD collection now as well!
