Nigel Farage drinks Greene King IPA - I don't think there would be much of a welcome for him at Harveys!

And as any CAMRA member should be able to tell you, George Osborne was the biggest obstacle in this government to the introduction of proper regulation of the large pubcos. His corporate mates have been busy closing pubs and selling them to developers and supermarkets, whether the locals use them or not!

I think Sussex Jim was one of those people who was easily distracted from the bigger picture by the small free gift.

The bigger picture is that George Osborne has allowed us to keep more of our earnings by constantly increasing the income tax thresholds year by year. More importantly, his Government will be raising the inheritance thresholds in their next term: which is very important to homeowners in this part of the country when their estate passes on to their offspring.

Sussex Jim, more importantly, that may allow us to build a massive wall around us and avoid any contact with the real world at all

Thanks Jim for reminding us about Gideon Osbourne's omnishambles budgets. Let's not forget that our tax threshold increase has more than been eaten up by the rise in VAT. Thank's a whole lot Gideon.
Any way Jim, wasn't raising the threshold a LibDem policy. A spot of myopic revisionism I think.

No, Ted. The thresholds were raised by the Tories: but, as usual, once the Liberals have raised an issue they then take the credit , no matter who has implemented it.

Which is why people have just stopped spending and saving and why the economy is still in deep deep doodoo.
Cue mad rant by Mr Newman...

We are (possibly) safe from Mr Newman Belladonna. You might not have been involved in the gripping developments last week but The Sword of Truth is sheathed. He has officially announced his withdrawl from this forum in a borderline grandiose statement and will be grazing in pastures anew. The reasons given were characteristically weird.

Unfortunately Mr Newman has previous, his consistency in sticking to a pledge challenges even Clegg. He will be back, but enjoy it while it lasts.
