    Only fecking brainless plebs buy steak from Asda anyway. Get it from your local butcher where it will be much better quality and wrapped in a small sheet of paper.

    Default ken clarke on 5live last night

    Key thing he said - public spending should be linked to growth in GDP. e.g. GDP increases 2%, public spending increase should be 1% and no exceptions. In this way the proportion of GDP being used for public spending increases but decreases as a proportion of GDP over time, sounded good to me.
    NHS is a bottomless pit, most economists accept this, you can chuck money in for ever and it will only make a tiny impact. You certainly won't see improvements proportional to the amounts spent. Having said that, my brother is a consultant Paediatrician and he is coining it after big rises in pay !!

    Yeah, how dare they fail to reduce corporation tax to 25%. Wait, what?

    They have done or tried to do most of those things haven't they? Tax credits was a bit of a crash and burn though where we ended up with that and the benefits cap I couldn't say.
    And abolishing IHT... I mean it'd be great for me personally but it's hardly necessary. And they did (will?) introduce the £1m main residence allowance won't they, or is that gone now?

    I'd like to see inheritance tax hiked further:
    - More incentive to spend what you have rather than take it to the grave
    - Levels the playing field for future generations
