Will the budget set new dividing lines?
As we look forward to the budget there’s an interesting post by Ben Brogan – who’s just moved from the Mail to the Daily Telegraph.
He writes: “My bones tell me that the Budget is going to lay out some epic dividing lines on the taxation of wealth and aspiration that will make 45p look tame. Maybe this talk of Lloyd George has spooked me, but I fear we are about to be catapulted back to the high tax age that took nearly a generation to unwind. The challenge for George Osborne and David Cameron is about to get far, far tougher.”
We’ll know in the next hour and a half.
