Well the Tories say they will reverse the main NI tax rise, the markets have shrugged off any thoughts about it and carry on, guided by other news. Even the bankers have little to worry about as all they have to do it sit on payments until mid-April instead if January.
None of the really long-term proposals will ever get enacted as the Government won't win the next election (outright) anyway.
So this will all be forgotten very quickly.
However the point about bankers bonus's could be a very clever political calculation. Labour know they have managed to blame bankers and not Brown's recklessness for the recession - when of course it was both. Now they have set-up a situation where there are big easy loopholes for the Banks to get out of the 'supertax' bind. I think the Government hopes the banks jump through the loopholes, just in time for an election where the Government can then attack the bankers and initiate a class-war type struggle, accusing the Tories of all being bankers' and such like. It reeks of Alistair Campbell plotting....
