    I'm not looking forward to it. Think it'll cause Greek-style striking?

    I'm off to buy my shell suite, illuminus socks and shoulder pads now then, before the vat is put on them. Maybe I can trade my Toyota in for an Audi Quatro while I'm at it

    I think the very poor will be OK, it isn't seen as politically acceptable to increase the burden on them. The Tories won't go for the very rich, as they are the major donors... Which leaves us in the middle. Find a barrel, drop your trousers and bend over!

    Erm, this is the Tory pary we are talking about? They're still upset that us 'servs' have the right to vote

    I wish people would get over themselves, labours policy of buy now pay later has led the country to ruin, action needs to be taken, and now, do you want to end up like greece?

    Well, it seems their first idea is 'sell whatever we haven't sold already'. Namely the Tote, HS1, private finance for Royal Mail, and the student loan book.

    So, a quick influx of money, but a long term drag IMO.
