Brown to "Cut Taxes to Boost Economy"

Headlines today; 'Brown to cut taxes to Boost Economy.'

Excellent. An admission that taxation reduces the economy.

Next step. Cut State sepnding.

I mean, 'how hard can it be'?

Theoretically it's easy.

1. You identify the three or so million public sector employees who are really needed.

2. You then privatise NHS and State education (about one million each) and fund them with taxpayer funded vouchers (so that's half a free market, at least).

3. That leaves an irreducible core of about one million (coppers, prison officers, coastguard, armed forces, tax collectors, legal system etc.)

4. You then sack the other five million. That's the difficult bit, politically.
