George Osbourne’s Tuppence Worth

george-osborne.jpgAS the dust settles on Gordon Brown’s less-than-exciting two penny budget, people wanting to claim for the government’s tax credits scheme will have to wade through a voluminous 60 page booklet before filling in a fiddly 12 page form, says the Sun.

Shadow Chancellor George Osborne is the first to bemoan the system. Says he: “Gordon Brown has increased taxes on hard-working families and then he expects them to fill in a complicated form to try to get back their own money”.

Fill in a form? In order to get money back? 12 whole pages? The cheek! The inconvenience! The injustice! Etc…
