More broken promises from Brown

In Brown on October 6, 2007 at 12:18 pm

If anyone can cast their minds back to 1999, you may remember Gordon Brown, Chancellor of the Exchequer, promised in a pre-budget report that any real term rises in road fuel duties will go straight to a ring-fenced fund for the modernisation of roads and public transport.

Is it any surprise that not one single penny has been transfered to this fund? Is it any surprise that such a fund doesn’t actually exist? Is it any surprise to hear that Gordon Brown has misled us? Of course not, but will the electorate boot him out?
