Expect more stealth taxes in Brown’s last budget

What will Brown's last budget have in store?

The key economic event of the week - in the UK at least - is also likely to be the biggest anti-climax. Gordon Brown's last Budget, says Capital Economics' Roger Bootle, is likely to be "one of the most boring Budgets ever - and that is against some pretty stiff competition" (much of it from Mr Brown himself, might we add). But that doesn't mean he won't find a way to pick your pocket somehow - after all, a Brown Budget just wouldn't be the same without a stealth tax or two, now would it?

  • I disagree with WaitingforHPC.

    HE IS AN ENORMOUS LIAR AND AN ENORMOUS THIEF WHOSE ECONOMIC INCOMPETENCE WILL BE FELT BY MANY “NORMAL” PEOPLE IN THE FUTURE. THOSE WHO ARE RICH WILL ESCAPE THE COMING MALESTROM FAR BETTER THEN THOSE NORMAL PEOPLE.

  • You could have just said “HE IS A POLITICIAN”. That’s what they do.

  • I disagree. There are some pretty respectable politicians out there. They don’t seem to make it to the ministries very often though.

  • The whole atmosphere everywhere now seems to be turning very ugly as the impending crisis approaches. Strange, no matter what the idiots in charge are saying everybody now seems resigned to the fact that the situation is going to get very nasty indeed. More unpleasant that the last recession by a long long way.

  • One tax I am looking forward to, however, is the extra duty on gas-guzzling SUVs (Suddenly Under Valued cars). Can’t stand them or the anti-social p*icks who drive them (excepting farmers, of course). No offence to those on this site who mistakenly bought one in the past.

  • Teflon Tony’s & Grabbin Gordons whole self serving empire has been built on cheap credit and tax on the spending of cheap credit. Unfortunately the cheap credit is running out and they are running out of tax options that they can apply to folks of average means. The party is over for our Laurel & Hardy political partnership, unfortunately it is Joe Public who will suffer the hangover.
