LibLink: Redressing the balance between the generations

Chris Nicholson, Director of CentreForum, has posted his take on the Budget on Total Politics.  He concludes:

It is often said that the best Budgets are usually those that get the immediate negative headlines. While the press has focused on the alleged “unfairness” of the Budget, history is likely to be rather kinder in suggesting that the budget has been much fairer than it at first sight appeared.

You can read the reasons for his optimism here.

  • No. I am sorry to say you are wrong. The very rich did pretty well. The poor who’s income is not high enough for income tax have been treated badly. State Pensioners were treated badly. In my opinion this is profoundly unfair – history will not be at all kind to it; nor, I suspect will the voters. I believe that if the Liberal Democrats were not part of the government, they too would be pretty scathing about this budget.
