Perhaps Redwood has got it right....

I did wonder if George Osbourne and John Redwood were possessing some higher intelligence which will lead them to make an astoundingly populist announcement on Friday which will start a vast wave which will deposit David Cameron on the shores of Downing Street after the next election. People will lap up their £13 billion giveaway for business, at the expense of longer working hours and less holiday for working people, I thought perhaps. After all, Osbourne and Redwood are so intelligent.

Any ideas I had in that direction were somewhat dissipated by reading Polly Toynbee in the Guardian today. She interviewed Redwood and tried to get some sense out of him.

Not a lot of slight was shed by the Wokingham Klingon.

  1. You mean the opportunity to have longer working hours?

    And perhaps the opportunity to sell our holiday back to our employer if we wish.

    Its not a giveaway for business as far as I can see. Its a cut in regulatory burden which lowers all our salaries and costs jobs.

    I also don't think its withing Polly Toynbee's ability to say anything sensible let alone get sense out of another person.
