It's taken me a while but I think I've cracked the grand plan, Gordon's going to making everything illegal unless he specifically says it's allowed. He has played around with this concept for some time, using the poor hapless tax payer as his guinea pig. The ancient sport of tax avoidance is viewed with considerable distaste by 'dear old Gordon' , he would like us to follow his badly drafted rules to the letter without using them to our best advantage. He is so sure of himself he fails to consider the longer term results of his clever wheezes.

Try these two for size - cut tax on capital gains to 10% on business assets held for more than two years - intended result -to encourage investment - unintended result - foreign nationals paying very little tax. Introduce detailed rules on party funding - intended result - cut the Conservatives down to size - unintended result - land own party deep in the mire because they are no more snow white than the rest of us mere mortals.

Will he learn? No I don't think so do you?
