In her Saturday Guardian column Polly Toynbee was complaining about the right-wing press' coverage of Darling's Pre-Budget Report:

"The pre-budget report was a political disaster. The massed Exocets of the press fired straight at Brown and Darling, as they were bound to. An election approaches and the 80% Conservative press at last scents victory. "Middle Classes Hit Hard", blazed the Telegraph. "The Buck Passer's Budget", said the Mail. "Labour's War on Workers", blared the Express."

It wasn't just the "80% Conservative press" Polly! Didn't you notice your own newspaper's headline…?

"Darling soaks the rich… and the rest of us too."
