finally tax cuts

Labour have bitten the bullet on tax cuts, not the best tax cut they could have gone for but at least it is a cut. They will no longer be able to scream that all tax cuts automatically have to mean cuts in services as they have now cut taxes and will be claiming that services are improving. This could well be a tactical mistake tax cuts will always play well with the electorate, and tax cuts are an area that is associated strongly with the Conservatives. In the past they could always use the claim that any reduction of taxes meant a reduction in services to neutralise this. As an excuse this is already wearing thin, money has been poured into services with no discernible improvement but now it will become hard for them to even field it.
