Mr. Bean admits mistakes over 10p Tax rate

So Gordon Brown has had his arm twisted up his back and admitted some mistakes over the 10p tax rate abolition, he told the BBC ” we didn’t cover our arses as well as we should” the losses to low earners.

Not that his admission is going to be a great help to low earners this year, nor will it help the 7m savers, who through no mistake of their own, are just finding out that their pension contributions aren’t going to be high enough because of Gordon’s last Budget.

Ian Naismith, of Scottish Widows, said: “There is no getting away from the fact that this hits just lower-rate taxpayers. It’s rather unfortunate.”

Yes, it’s just another unfortunate mistake that Gordon made as he tries to convince us that he isn’t a tax grabbing over spending old fashioned socialist who loves to accidentally widen the gap between rich and poor. I wonder how many other howlers he’s about to fess up to?

“We’ve taken 7m people out of poverty” he was saying again in the House of Commons at lunchtime, reminding us that he’s thrown millions of pounds at the Post Office just to see them all closed down, created more jobs than the Chinese, that the New deal has saved us all from a banking crisis, world economic collapse, and terrorism too, and all in the last 42 days!

Didn’t he say all that last week, last month, and last year?

Oops, another mistake!
