Isn't it hilarious that on the Sopel interview, Gordon Brown refuses to talk about the likely measures to be announced tomorrow? He won't discuss a cut in VAT because "Jon, you wouldn't expect me to discuss measures which haven't been announced yet." Does this man's mendacity know no limits?
The VAT cut is the main headline story in every single broadsheet paper today. Does Gordon Brown think these newspapers all, coincidentally, got the story by accident? No, they got it because either Number Ten or the Treasury leaked it to them yesterday.
In 1947, the Chancellor was forced to resign over a pre budget leak. With this lot it's become something they do as a matter of routine. It's all about tomorrow's headline.
The Conservatives should hit Darling hard with this tomorrow.
