A call of no-confidence is hardly a good start for the next PM
The Conservatives are set to call for vote of no-confidence over Gordon Brown decision to scrap tax relief on pension funds. Mr Brown insists the decision which has raised 5bn a year was the right one and a key reason the UK economy has been so strong over the last decade. A more cynical person may suggest that once one factors out Brown's pension raid, growth through high migration and the conversion of houses into personal cash machines then there is not much of a "miracle economy" to shout about.
