Why’s he hitting those most likely to vote Tory?
Lots to digest from the Osborne budget and the item that I’m most surprised to see is the phasing out of pensioners tax allowances. Eh?
These are are people who played a key part in getting rid of Labour ar the last general election. They are the most blue-inclined segment of the electorate, and they are most likely to be on the register and to vote. Also many have been hit sharply by the dramatic collapse in interest rates on their savings.
