Creative accounting!

National Audit Office rejects Treasury accounts

Britain’s spending watchdog is refusing to approve the Treasury’s accounts, compounding a miserable year for Alistair Darling, the Chancellor of the Exchequer. Senior officials spoke last night of a collapse of morale at the Treasury after a string of U-turns and interference by No 10. In another blow to Mr Darling’s independence, Gordon Brown has asked him to carry out a review of green taxation to pave the way for further climbdowns on road tax and fuel duty this autumn.

    The unfortunate thing for Darling is he actually looks like a puppet as well as seen to be acting like one.

    Labour seem to be embarking on a ‘Death Row’ policy strategy for the electorate. They say in advance that something terrible is going to happen and then at the eleventh hour they move away from the chopping block and take off your shroud. Hey presto, you’re free and are simply thankful to be alive.

  • GB and ADs’ games are coming under scrutiny and not just from the NAO. Trying to play the ‘Good Guy/Bad Guy’ card is not fooling anyone. At the end of the day the figures have to be transparent or the economy suffers.

  • Normally this woud be a sensational story, but the general acceptance that the govt is no longer capable of organising a p*ss-up in a brewery means that it fails to surprise anyone…
