IDS: Brown’s Broken Promise on Tax

Iain Duncan Smith responds to Gordon Brown following the budget…

“One thing that we learned from the Chancellor today is that he has already broken one major election promise by putting up national insurance, which is a tax on income…This Government said that they would not raise income taxes at all—they do not like being reminded of that, but it is the truth—but everyone knows that this is a tax on income. The Chancellor has added a penny in the pound to income tax, and he has broken his promise to the British people… Frankly, after this no one will ever believe another word that he says.”
