Andrew Neil on a Social Democratic Budget

Andrew Neil on the budget

“This was the Budget of a mainstream social democratic government that believes in a big, activist state and that government should temper the workings of the market in every sector and at every opportunity.

To pay for it all, the tax burden will rise to 37.3% of GDP next year, the highest since World War II. This may or may not be the right way to run an economy in the 2020s but it’s not what Tories have been used to, at least not until recently.”
