To provide certainty, the chancellor said he is writing to the governor of the Bank of England to keep a 2% target on inflation.

Well at least he hasn't abandoned it altogether.

So far...

Well, he's not actually said anything yet. As far as I can see, he's made a bet with someone over how many times he can say the words "global" and "world".

Apparently he's writing to Merv to say "nothing's changed".

One improvement over previous years - he's not adding a supernumary 's' to plural billion amounts.

From what I have seen so far, it seems like he is planning to sail full ahead stright into the eye of the storm.

That is probably the best solution, get through it and take the battering. Better than sailing round it and still ending up bu**ered.

The only thing I doubt is his ability. We need someone with more expereice and staying power.

Apparently everything is ok, because we are better positioned than other countries. Ah so if everything goes to pot worldwide its alright because we won't be the wrost off... oh dear oh dear oh dear.

It would appear he doesn't actually have anything encouraging to say about the UK finances but instead is using teh old brown tactic of conveying how we are doing better than others (because we screwed up a bit less than them)

In reality the dodging of bullets was so well handled by brown. He would cherry pick from other economies finding who did the worst in a particular area and then compare it to ours. Unfortunately the definition of a vibrant economy is that you are better than the rest of your peers, not that you are not the worst of the bunch.

For environmental reasons, fuel duty will rise by 0.5p per litre in real terms. He said he was postponing the 2p increase in fuel duty until October this year.

So that will be a REAL increase in tax then. Netting him how much?

Mr Darling said an extra £2bn will be spent on troops in the frontline, including £900m on military equipment.

As I am sure his wife has said to him many times:

"FFS man, just pull out!" :lol:

"There will be no return to the inflation rates of the early 1990s," Mr Darling said.

....."because we will be returning to the inflation rates of the 70's" he added.

£10 says this will not be through higher interest rates, it will be through pay cuts.

You hear me, you Labour-voting public sector robots?

Pay cuts.

I'm not generally a violent man, but am I the only one that feels like marching down Whitehall, bursting into the House of Commons and kicking that w@nker Darling's f@#king face in? :angry:

From April 2010, all long term recipients of incapacity benefit will attend work capacity programmes.

Spending in government departments must be matched by reform, Mr Darling said.

you would have thought after 10 years of this in every speach we'd at least have managed some reform by now!
