Yesterday Brown gambled and he thinks he can ‘win’ either way.  If the gamble sparks a recovery in his poll rating he will be happy but if it doesn’t it won’t be Labour that has to pick up the bills.  An incoming Conservative government will inherit a public finances nightmare.  Winning the next General Election will be the beginning of some very tough years.  It’s been variously called a bombshell budget, a boomerang budget and a kamikaze budget.  I’ll just call it cynical.  Deeply, deeply cynical.
