Budget 05: Howard fights back

Opposition leader slams Brown's speech.

Opposition leader Michael Howard has slammed Gordon Brown’s speech as a ‘vote now, pay later Budget’.

Howard slammed what he called a ‘dodgy’ government as setting out a ‘dodgy Budget based on dodgy numbers’ and said that Brown had created most of the problems which he today unpicked. This included the previous stamp duty and inheritance tax rates.

‘What this chancellor gives with one hand, he takes away with another,’ said Howard.
