VAT reduction = political genius

Ok, so whilst £2.50 for every £100 spent is not WooHoo exciting here is why this move, plus all the other possible announcements make total political sense.

1. Darling and Brown announce stuff, it works, they are hailed heroes and storm the election

2. Darling and Brown announce stuff, nothing works, Tories win the next election and inherit a tax nightmare, forced to put up taxes, everyone hates them again, Labour landslide at the next election

So there you go. 2.5% matters bugger all when most shops are already discounting at 20%+ but the political decision making seems obvious to me.

Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe

Just caught up with the new series of Screenwipe on iPlayer. Watching it makes the world seem a little more sane.

Brilliant take on the Ross/Brand saga and commentaries on Britannia High, the Credit Crunch and TV and all the usual stuff.

White deer

Meant to write about this a while ago. Driving past Ettington Park Hotel the other day Steph and I had to stop to let some deer cross the road and looking to my right noticed that one of the deer was totally white – really stood out in the group.

Rather lovely if you ask me. You can see why the white stag is considered to be something a bit magical and special.
