John Humphrys spent most of an interview with George Osborne defending the Budget and the Chancellor. Brown himself is on at 0810, let us listen to Humphrys's snivelling brown-nosing then! Osborne descibed the budget as a 'Stealth Budget' - spot on. I suppose it is ok on Humphrys's salary to be a 'champagne socialist'. I reckon that Brown believes that the poorer, less educated people will not see or realise that the removal of the 10% rate will hit them hard. Mind you with the lack of education provided in the last ten years by this failed and dishonest administration, he could be right.
