Brown labelled ‘one man tax industry'

Conservatives latch onto new report

Chancellor Gordon Brown has been labelled a ‘one-man tax creation industry’
following a report by the Centre for Policy Studies.

Analysis by the CPS said that for every household in the UK, tax had risen in
real terms by the equivalent of £6,182 since 1996/97.

It warned that the increased tax burden could lead to a loss of growth equal
to 6% of GDP over 10 years.

Shadow Tory chancellor George Osborne said: ‘The longer the he (Brown)
remains in power the more we will see the burden of taxation on Britain’s hard
working families rise.’

‘It is exactly the wrong approach to competing in the new global economy,’ he
claimed.
