First chance I've had to comment, but Gordon Brown's pre-budget slaughter of the innocent really pissed me off.
Anybody who drives a car, doesn't break the law and who chooses not to have kids has long been the financial backbone of this country, laying out sack after sack of cash to allow many a government to spend it unwisely.
Now, we have child allowance for unborn babies. Yes, a benefit being paid to someone who doesn't actually exist yet. It truly is a step from the not-quite-so to the very-ridiculous. Oh, and "Green" taxes are just another way of getting money out of the general populous. Stealth taxes, without the stealth.
I have to drive to work, due to public transport being invisible between home and my workplace. What this means, of course, is that I will still put petrol in my car, regardless of the price. Putting 1.25p on a litre isn't going to make me consider leaving the car at home, and the lousy, pickpocketing Jock knows it.
Welcome to new Labour, the old Tories.
