Warning: This post was published more than 12 years ago.

I keep old posts on the site because sometimes it's interesting to read old content. Not everything that is old is bad. Also, I think people might be interested to track how my views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured!

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might have changed in the 12 years since I wrote this post.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Many thanks for your understanding.

Tories set to unveil tax cut plan (BBC News)

I don’t think we, in our wildest dreams, thought that the Conservatives would drop the ball to the extent that they have done

The words of Matthew Taylor. I do wish the Lib Dems would get control of their language – you can drop a ball or not drop it. You cannot have an ‘extent’ of ball-dropping. It’s this kind of silly slip and bad writing that makes them look amateurish, and not like a future government.

I’m just about to watch Mr Howard’s speech about Tax Cuts. I hope he doesn’t go as far as the headlines seem to be suggesting, because it will make people think that he’s going to cut services in a big way, which will play right into slimy Milburn’s slimy hands.
