Alistair Darling drops hints on tax cuts in the UK

In a move which has startled and amazed many in the financial world the Chancellor of the Exchequer Alistair Darling has dropped his strongest hint yet that tax rates in the UK could be reduced in the short term to boost the economy. This has caused mayhem in political circles with opposition parties suggesting that Gordon Brown is trying to buy his way out of trouble while ever increasing the amount of debt owed by the UK government.

Many are speculating that the real aim of this move is to put more pressure on the Conservative Party who would then be forced to vote against tax cuts which would then put the party at odds with the UK voting public. While some may suggest this is a very clever move by Gordon Brown, in effect he is trying to bribe the UK public while detaching opposition parties from many groups of voters. We can only hope that the vast majority of the UK voting public is able to see through this blatant attempt at putting the Labour Party before the country.

The Gordon Brown of today is unrecognisable from the Gordon Brown of his heyday in the Treasury when financial restraint and fiscal prudence were the name of the game.
