Where is the vision?

The PBR was a disappointment, even more so than the recall of the election. If Brown wanted to give the country his vision of a better Britain, why did he let his Chancellor copy Tory policies. From a strategic point that might be understandable, but how does paying less inheritance tax make us a better Britain? They should have instead given more money to poor children in this country. The government is still committed to halve child poverty by 2010, but is nowhere near to reach this by 2010. They might opt for a last minute (if they are still in power) rescue in 2009 but what’s the point of doing too little for 13 years and then doing everything in one day. One generation of poor children will thank Brown for that.
