The Anonymous Widower

Two ‘eads Are Better Than One!

This is an old phrase, but it certainly doesn’t apply to the two Eds trying to think up Labour Party tax policies.

In this article on the BBC, about the taxing of ‘non-doms’, this is said.

Ed Miliband said the non-dom rules were “indefensible” and axing them would raise “hundreds of millions” in tax.

But shadow chancellor Ed Balls was forced to deny contradicting himself after saying in January that scrapping the rule “would cost Britain money”.

How many people will now take everything they say with an awfully large pinch of salt?

I think it illustrates the first law of politics, which is don’t go into it, if you can’t remember everything you’ve done and said, since you first drew breath.
