    Hmm, difficult one.

    So far I don't think Cameron has done anything corrupt/wrong, and if it turns out this possibility is true, I would find that wrong. Yes, employing Coulson was a mistake, but nothing more.

    It would have surprised me if you had suggested this a few weeks ago, I believe Cameron to be a decent man of conviction.

    That said, in the context of this situation, very little would surprise me now =/
    You have to be under 20 to say that with a straight face.

    I was just thinking the same thing. He seems to have woken up now though.

    Well the notion that any modern politician, particularly one whose background lies in privileged wealth and public relations is a "man of deep conviction" (or whatever the phrase) is laughably naive.

    Perhaps his son kicked him under the table

    Have you ever been in a meeting or talked to someone? Hand gestures are a major part, when I am in a meeting I hit the table like
    Murdoch everyone has a style.

    Hitting the table is deliberately aggressive though. There are better ways of engaging.

    Suddenly Labour's VAT cut to 15% looks helpful eh. The Tories always put VAT up.
    Indeed. In saying that, I don't think the proposed NI rise from Labour's end instead is a particularly good idea either.

    I really would love to see tax made much more transparent. Labelling should be done as 'Cost of TV: £400' 'Government charge to buy TV: £80'. Likewise, I'd like to see all of people's wages deposited into their account with a tax bill to pay. It would make people realise that we really do pay extortionate amounts in tax. Mutiny!

    Yeah but NI only hits you if you have a job. VAT hurts everyone from pensioners on fixed incomes to people who are unemployed. It's massively less fair than "the tax on jahbs".

    What's wrong with this exactly? If they can offer a better service then fine. It's not like you will suddenly have to start paying for healthcare. Did't Labour start doing this with the NHS as well?
