Hmmm.
I'd say 7c on petrol.
10% motor tax increase.
Betting tax doubled.
Lower income tax rate increased by 2%
Higher income tax rate increased by 3% and tax band cut off lowered to 32k a year.
Job-seekers, disability benefit, Income support, down 10 a week.
Childrens allowance means tested, and dropped by 10 a month.
Takeaway booze will be hit hard, cigs will increase 15c, Vat up 1%
All happy days really

I think you meant Bacardi?

The wife said the rumour is that the children's allowance on your third child will drop by 40...

Not looking forward to car tax hike!!!

That'll be tough for V6 owners eh Enda?

What has happened to Bishop Brennan will happen to us all. Every day. But then I get into the car and go for a drive. And the grin comes back. Until the low fuel light comes on....

Hey it's cheap, green and tax free.... and nuitriuous.

Just seen some of the details this evening. A fair few quid less each week plus all the hidden stuff. A bit unfair to lower incomes to be honest. Its an expensive place to live.

Yes, I know what will be in the budget. There will be more ways to take money away from you and your children and give it to big business and bankers.

That#s if it's anything like our budgets
