I'm not even really sure what the story's about. I didn't get past a skim of the first couple paragraghs. I just think the headline and the name Ed Balls are hilarious.

Chancellor acted on best advice -Balls
Reuters Saturday March 31, 09:58 AM

Ed Balls, economic secretary to the Treasury
, :rofl: said Brown had acted on the "best advice from the civil servants" when he scrapped tax relief on dividends paid into pension funds in July 1997.
