Letter: The BIG issue - Gordon's crown.
GORDON Brown announced a surprise 2p cut in income tax from 22p to 20p in what is expected to be his final Budget before he is chosen as the next Prime Minister. The Chancellor also pledged an increase in child benefit and more investment in education and the NHS. And Mr Brown was in the news earlier this week when civil servant Lord Turnbull branded him Stalinist. Here are your views...
CONGRATULATIONS to Gordon Brown on an absolutely outstanding Budget.
He has helped families, the poor and pensioners and his surprise 2p cut in the income tax rate will appease the elusive middle-class "floating" voters.
Plus, he has committed billions of pounds to the NHS and education. Brown has dealt a major body blow to the Tories with this budget which proves he's the right man for the top job.
