‘Mandelson’s fingerprints’

From The Times:

Mandelson’s fingerprints are all over Chancellor’s ‘workmanlike’ Budget

Indeed they are.

The report goes on to mention possible budget measures:

A proposed new green investment bank to fund renewable energy schemes

Shaving future borrowing forecasts

Cash for schemes to help youth training and other employment schemes

Tax breaks for small businesses to help them to retain staff

Above-inflation rises in alcohol and cigarette duty

Deferring the 2.5p fuel duty increase due on April 1

What has happened to the abolition of the 50p tax rate and the other ‘dividing lines’ that will wrong foot the Tories?

In two days those goodies will be unwrapped.
