My sympathies to anyone who listened to or watched the budget speech today; I feel your pain. With my incorproated small business hat on, I listened anxiously awaiting news of any meddling New Labour fiscal reform which might impinge upon my hard-won entrepreneurial liberties (which consist chiefly of not paying much tax) - but by the end I was so bored that I would have gladly volunteered to pay Labour’s 1970s top rate of 98% if it would make Alistair Darling stop.
On the other hand, I’ve recently cut down drastically on drinking and as a result have had quite a bit of trouble getting to sleep - in that sense, the budget speech came just at the right time. Even if Darling does nothing else for me this year, at least he’s saved me a few quid on Natracalm.
