The Lib Dems are furious at Mr Osborne’s attempt to “take credit” for the policy, which has been driven by Mr Alexander and Nick Clegg, the Deputy Prime Minister.
A senior Lib Dem source said that the party will in the coming weeks send out more than 20 million leaflets to voters in 60 constituencies emphasising their role in raising the personal allowance.
“I committed several years ago to taking the personal allowance to £12,500 in the next Parliament. So I’m taking every opportunity to push with further progress with that.”
That’s actually a policy that originated with one T. Worstall. Andn yes, it is possible to track it from me through the Lib Dem policy making process.
So let’s have credit where credit is due, shall we?
