It’s budget day, and my work mate who I commute with is really not bothered. He claims to not be interested in Politics, yet his knowledge of whats going on is spot on and our morning and evening commute conversations are often heavily politically loaded.
He claims, as a number of people do, that it doesn’t really matter because he ends up worse off every budget day, regardless.
I hope he will be proven wrong today. If rumours on the net and in the dead tree press turn out to be true, the Chancellor could well be about to move the threshold for Income Tax up again, taking more earning out of the tax system and he looks likely to give motorists some relief on the price of Petrol.
I know that we are living in economically difficult times, but I am rather looking forward to some small nuggets of good news from this budget!
