This is fucking rich from Ed Balls

And it is undermining the ability of HMRC to administer and collect the tax, by cutting its resources too far and too fast.

The reduction in HMRC headcount is a direct consequence of, indeed part of the plan of, the merger of Inland Revenue with Customs&Excise.

Something planned by George Brown when Chancellor. And the SpAd to George Brown when Chancellor was….Ed Balls.

You actually planned this you tosser!

  1. He is a politician, and a particularly oily example of the breed, so breathtaking hypocrisy and lies are to be expected.

  2. George Brown?

    I know it is difficult to tell Osborne and Gordon’s economics policies apart some times, but surely you aren’t suggesting they are the same man?

  3. Perhaps our genial host is showing his age here and is thinking of the former deputy labour leader from the 60s and 70s?..

  4. George Brown was never Chancellor. He was Secretary of State for Economic Affairs.

    And SpAds hadn’t been invented then, so Ed Balls could never have been his SpAd.

  5. I’ve met Ed Balls. He’s the Conservative Party’s greatest asset. Got to be worth a good 20,000 votes in his own right.

    I’m just amused that he won re-election as an MP. Though what that says about voters is another matter.

  6. George Briwn was the minister who spent the Wilson years as a drunk. Understandable, really.
