I never thought that Gordon Brown, a man who at least tried to appear fair to the poor and less wealthy, would introduce a budget which damages the poor and less well-off so much, while benefitting the middle classes. The abolition of the 10p rate is an utter disgrace. The fact that it is funded by a cut in the middle rate from 22 to 20 pence makes it even more shameful.
Well done to Menzies for brilliantly highlighting this disgrace.
One can only surmise that Gordon Brown has fallen into the pocket of Paul Dacre.
