Guido compares the lacklustre Tory tax-cutting promises to those in the US and New Zealand, where novices promising tax cuts won with big majorities. Apparently (Obama? A tax-cutter? Really?).
What Guido fails to point out is, as usual, the massive fucking elephant in the room: New Zealand and the USA rule themselves. Our parties, on the other hand (and this includes the Tories), have no hope of ruling the country for which they are standing: the EU does.
As such, no political party in this country can promise anything of any importance and so you may as well stuff you vote up Hazel Blears' foetid hole, frankly.
Vote for who the hell you like, but bear in mind that, unless their first act is to leave the EU, they can cut, control, or repair slightly less than the square root of fuck all.
