1247 From BBC political correspondent Iain Watson: The chancellor is embarking on an extended narrative to "prove" ahead of the election that Labour got the big decisions right on the economy. But by pointing out that a tax on bankers' bonuses has raised more than twice as much as expected, he can use this as cover, later in his speech, to offer up some goodies even though the deficit will remain extremely high (if a little lower than previously predicted).

funny.... 2trn in world wide stimulus has had an effect on tax receipts.

and when it falls off...guess what...." we need to lock in this recovery with more stimulus".

This guy is a good speaker, but its so transparent.

The test is for Osbourne.....I dont think he has the skill to compete TBH.

Aren't the ISA limits old news from a previous budget? Is Darling double-dipping "good" news?

I think it was announced last year for pensioners only. Now it has been extended to include everyone. Is it not age discrimination to give one particular age band preferential treatment / terms over others?
