Comments on: Tories panic with tax cut pledge Wed, 16 Nov 2016 01:37:11 +0000 hourly 1 By: Percy Pants Mon, 29 Mar 2010 17:19:48 +0000 It seems very much that Gordon Brown has funked calling an election this time – though in truth it’s more a cynical ploy to allow Labour to electioneer at the taxpayers’ expense, and without sharing details of budgets with the other contenders. Hardly surprising then that the Tories are keeping their powder dry and remaining enigmatic. Shame that reticence seems to be costing the Tories percentage points in the race – Labour’s 13 years of spin and deceit do appear to be continuing to work and fooling the electorate.
