Tory tax cuts...

British politics has finally started to get back on track - with a clear dividing line on tackling the recession emerging between the two main parties.

Under Tory plans businesses with fewer than five employees would have the rate of employers' National Insurance cut by 1p for at least six months.

Most people accept that the cuts themselves are not a panacea for our problems.

But they are in stark contrast to Darling's announcement to drive the economy by putting money into public works.

Having the right talk about tax cuts and the left about the public sector is a return to normality after an odd period of false togetherness.

Hopefully it will mean we can all start to get a clearer view of what the parties stand for - let the competition begin.
