A Freudian slip in this article?

Higher sin taxes to pay for lower jobs taxes: George Osborne promised a review of certain sin taxes in the autumn but I was surprised that he did not use the opportunity of the fiscal crisis to tax things that are least socially useful (eg smoking, drinking, pollution and the hi-value housing market) to cut taxes on the things that our economy most needs at present (jobs and investment).

It's what we've been saying for years, but it's certainly interesting to hear it from a site that is generally regarded as representing a mainstream political party's thinking.
