    haha a few minutes earlier Cameron said something like all Governments suffer protest votes in by-elections, so was this a case of the Coalition protesting against itself…?!

      That signals two things.

      1. Gove will go missing this afternoon.

      2. Cameron’s basement will have a newly-concreted floor by tomorrow morning.

Cathy Jamieson MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury minister, commenting on Treasury analysis of the economic impact of tax changes…

“If the Treasury is looking at the economic impact of tax changes, then surely it should examine the impact of the rise in VAT and cuts to tax credits? George Osborne’s £12 billion VAT rise knocked confidence, helped to choke off the recovery and has cost families £1,350 over the last three years.”
