Slow down, Darling

If you’re interested, I’ve posted my take on the Pre-Budget Report over at the BT Business blog – with (I think) appropriate political balance, given that it’s under a BT banner. I’m surprised there hasn’t been more comment generally about the pace of Darling’s delivery. The speech seemed to fly by, certainly in comparison to previous years. And was I the only one surprised to see how many Labour front-benchers failed to get a seat on the front bench? Browne, Miliband (E) and Benn were caught in cutaway shots, standing on the fringes.
