Government climbs down under backbench and public pressure

The Government appear to have climbed down with regard to measures to alleviate the effect of the 10p tax band abolition.

The devil will no doubt be in the detail, but wouldn't it have been refreshing for the Government to simply admit that they got it wrong?

And what of the bulk of Labour MP's who wouldn't sign Frank Field's amendment? Why, other than loathing of the Tory alternative, should we bother to vote for any of you? Cowards, the lot of them. Have they suddenly changed their mind or do they still agree that the abolition was a good idea?

Labour need to look very carefully at themselves and what they are doing.
