March 22 : Number 10 for Brown

What could be old Gordon Brown’s tenth and last budget will be on March 22nd. He will as always announce increased tractor production, dump a load of numbers over us boasting about all the money he has invested wasted. Guido doesn’t understand how spending zillions on public sector pay and pensions for nappy commissars et al is an investment, when you tip the barman you don’t say “I’ve invested in the future attentiveness of the bar staff” do you?
