Progress column

My Progress column this week was about Ed Miliband's announcement on the 10p tax rate: http://www.progressonline.org.uk/2013/02/14/10p-and-the-mansion-tax/

Page 439: Brown’s budget (his last)

Andrew Rawnsley:

“In the New Year, he returned to the idea…The officials again cautioned that abolishing the 10p band would create many losers. Livermore maintained his opposition. Balls, a much more powerful figure at the court of Brown now flipped in support”

(Interviews, Treasury officials)

(The End of the Party).

A very squalid business indeed as Luke rigtly points out. Sadly, by no means the only example!
