Tory tax discussion bores on

Is anyone else bored of the sterile debate on the Tories’ tax policy? Practically everyone in the UK seems to have contributed their opinions on the report, which details policies that aren’t going to be implemented. Not because the Tories won’t get in, but just because senior Tories seem to have explicitly disavowed most of it.

We’ve known for quite a while that the Tories tax policy is this: no costed and promised tax cuts, but a general promise to cut them, corporation tax in particular. That, and a sweeping away of tax reliefs.

Is anyone any the wiser after the acres of comment about the Forsyth commission yesterday?
