1983 called: muttered something about plagiarism

I could have written this budget myself, given an 1983 copy of the Daily Telegraph's editorial and letters pages.

Cuts in fuel tax
Cuts in corporation tax
Increase in citizens' taxes
Abolition of 'red tape' (i.e. pesky health, safety and environmental protection)
More pollution
More lost jobs
Richer bankers - poorer everyone else
Growth restricted
Jam tomorrow.

And lo, it came to pass.
