Greetings from Blackpool! Horrible journey via train but I’m here in the Imperial Hotel. Surrounded by ‘It’s time for change’ slogans on a black background. The photo on the right is of a beermat circulating around the Imperial Hotel: Gordon Brown – Disturbingly Expensive.
The Press Association is reporting that the party will promise to abolish stamp duty for first-time buyers on homes worth up to £250,000. This will take nine out of ten first-time buyers out of the tax.
Two opinion polls tomorrow will show the Labour lead down to 7%. Not brilliant but much better.
