Outgoing CBI president, Martin Broughton, on the 50% tax rate: "Gordon Brown is guilty of economic vandalism. "We contend that for a nation to try to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle."
Gordon Brown is addressing the CBI annual dinner. Lucky people. He is dragging out all the usual tractor production figures. This is an ideal opportunity to play Gordon Brown's bullshit bingo. I've just had a thought. We could reduce crime by forcing those arrested to watch this crap whilst waiting to be charged. That should stop a few from re-offending. No doubt it won't be allowed as it would be against their Uman Rites.
