I'm thinking of moving my savings to Cyprus.

Well to my amazement he's done ok though this should have been last year's budget. Better late than never.

I suggested that corporation tax would have to go down - trend just that.
I suggested house building a good idea - govt dep guarantee will help massively. Better idea than more social housing too. OTOH if properly implemented the average house value will fall in the SE (supply and demand ... )

Petrol / booze escalators removed :-)

The changes in NI payments for employers will def make a difference esp for young people trying to find/keep a permanent job.

Low paid moved out of income tax altogether.

Even Mary Riddell thinks the boy did ok.

Maybe Osbourne is thinking about moving next door.

@ Dermot, I was thinking of putting ours under the bed in the spare room, but perhaps that's not such a good idea ;-)

I think Labour should have won the election..............then we'd see how they could get this country out of the mess they made!

To hear Ed Balls he has all the answers to our problems! :-|
