That's about the size of it...and much that was announced won't happen until April 2014 in any case. However, I applaud those measures that seek to rebalance the economy as I do the lib-dem policy to raise the personal allowance to £10k,
By why do govts of all flavours have to make things so complicated? And as for the promised investment in infrastructure, what do they mean? I hope its not about recruiting loads of civil servants to tell us that there is no money for infrastructure investment cos its all gone on their wages!
The first thing that usually happens with large government infrastructure programs is that they recruit an army of 'consultants' on a four figure a day rate and stick them in the most expensive office space in London.*
* See CrossRail as an example - there are a few hundred consultant types occupying two floors of the City Group building in Canary Wharf while there are probably acres of free space in government buildings across London, but they don't have a 'cool' address.
