Cameron commission calls for tax cuts

It was only a matter of time, wasn't it? A policy commission which was set up by Cameron has called on the Tories to commit to tax cuts of £21 billion pounds.

The Independent Tax Reform Commission's report is to be unveiled tomorrow but details briefly appeared on the Tories' website. With Cameron having already refused to countenance the demands from the party's right to pledge tax cut promises before the next general election, it will make difficult reading for the leader and may be even more difficult for him to brush aside.

George Osborne has already moved to restrict the opportunities for Labour to seize on the report by saying he welcomes the findings and that it gives his party options.

Cameron's "N.H.S" conference speech is still fresh in the mind and doubtless his detractors will ask how the ITRC's findings can be in anyway beneficial to public services.

Dave's renewal of the party suddenly looks a little less assured. Same old Conservatives?
