Clegg lashes out against 'tax sting'.

. From Politics Home...

"Mr. Clegg criticised the Chancellor's pre budget report. He said "he's given British families a temporary cut in VAT and a massive tax sting in National Insurance which will hurt working families in this coutntry."He added: "This 45p rate on earnings over £150,000 is irrelevant.

That is a great pity because it now leaves Britain more vulnerable to the economic shock and more unfair than it was before."He gave Mr. Darling's pre budget report "barely a 5" out of 10."

Good agitation points for people in Labour heartlands I think here....

From someone who spent years advocating a 50pc top rate before deciding that 40 is OK, I'm not sure this can really be taken seriously...
