Hughes It Is Then
After his better performance at yesterday's PMQ's, Sir Ming is obviously intending to go through with it.
And having tacked left, he's now tacking back to the right. He's ditching that 50p income tax for the undeserving rich, and now wants:
"fairer taxes, not higher taxes. Wealthy people and polluters should pay more; the poor and the old should pay less. I think we should use tax to promote opportunity, not to restrict ambition."
Eh? No 50p rate, but "wealthy people" and Jag drivers "should pay more". Is that right or left? Or just traditional LD gibberish?
But it all leaves Si firmly on track to win. And just because those modernisers are too nice to push.
