Eyes down for the oddest pre-Budget report ever


So with the worst government deficit ever, the Chancellor’s main proposal is – to help pensioners by reducing Bingo Duty from 22% to 20%.

Is the Chancellor completely out of his depth, or is this a sign that he has won a titanic struggle against demands from the Prime Minister for huge tax increases on the “rich"? I guess we won’t have to wait long for their memoirs to be published to find out.
