Comments: Black gold spares Brown's blushes

It seems to me the most significant tax proposal this week was the one from Germany’s Schroeder to cut corporation tax from 25% to 19%. It makes the UK’s 30% look a bit sick.

What has Gordon done for business? He’s reducing the number of government bodies that UK business has to deal with. Does anyone seriously think UK business will see a lower workload from government bureaucracy as a result of their changing the headed notepaper?

It would mean something if Gordon was going to sack a corresponding number of bureaucrats but this parasite layer will just keep on inventing ways to feed itself – off UK business.
