CBI Leaders rebuff treasury spin

Pension 'spin' attack on Treasury

Ministers keen to protect prime minister in-waiting Gordon Brown stated that Business leaders endorsed the decision in Brown's first budget to scrap pension tax credits. CBI director-general Richard Lambert flatly denies support for the policy and stated, "This is a convenient bit of spin by the Treasury". Meanwhile shadow chancellor George Osborne will lead a commons debate on the issue and said, " It is time Gordon Brown faced the music for the damage he's done to British pensions."

  • Finally – BBC breaks its silence. Have a feeling this will die down for the recess – then flair up big time – just when Gordo wants to take over the reigns!!!

    This one’s for Glorius:


    Goodbye to the summer
    Sold down the river
    Unhappy ever after
    Well did you ever?
    Did you ever reach for the glued-down penny?
    Same old joke and it’s not funny
    Burns are red, bruises blue
    Out with the old, cheated by the new
    Do you suffer from long-term memory loss?
    I don’t remember…
    Do you suffer from long-term memory loss?
    I don’t remember…
    You sing the same old verse
    Stick like glue for better or worse
    What goes around comes around, again, again, again
    This heart pulled apart
    Hydra fighting head to head
    Burns are red, bruises blue
    Out with the old cheated by the new
    Do you suffer from long-term memory loss?

  • “…stated that Business leaders endorsed the decision in Brown’s first budget …”

    Thank goodness there is no attempt to suggest that the w******r is working on behalf of the general public.
