After last weeks backing of Obama's bank plan Osborne has again hit the ground running despite continued snipping from both within and without Conservative ranks.

"...built on saving and private sector investment, not the unsustainable public spending and consumer debt of the past ten years..." ...He goes on to say that the UK must become competitive again. Nothing new there; luckily, the stampede of companies set to leave the UK hasn't yet built up steam and I guess the only reason is that those companies, despite having plans to go are hanging on hoping to see Brown's brownstuff stripped away by the next administration...and stripped away it must be.
Britain’s new economic model must be built on saving and private sector investment, not the unsustainable public spending and consumer debt of the past ten years.

"Simpler taxes with lower tax rates, removing employment taxes on new businesses employing new staff, stopping the remorseless rise of red tape on small businesses."
