That Budget's not Darling, it's too dear.
As this is not my politics / economics blog, I content myself with saying this: any party that chooses to put up taxes on cider when there are so many other possibilities, has clearly written off the West Country constituencies.

Was completely unimpressed by that.

Well, actually...

Re: Well, actually...

I couldn't comment on the rest until I've had time to digest it. It's an election budget as opposed to a proper one.

I very much doubt it'll go down well in the Marches, either.

ETA: Unlike the cider.

Does a combine harvester have a business end?

"We'll tell him something, he won't be the Darling bud of our May. We would like offer our 50 years of experience of cider drinking and of playing within a cider community to the government in an advisory capacity. And the public can assured that we would obviously register our interests in cider before any lobbying commenced."

10% was a bit bloody steep. With summer in a few months they've effectively taken away my relaxing drink of choice.
