Awkward pause

Poor Alan Johnson. I've always thought he was a nice bloke but nice only gets you so far. The Telegraph jumped on this pretty quickly (no surprise) but I see the BBC and the Guardian haven't (also no surprise). If you're going to be the Shadow Chancellor and go on TV and argue in favour of raising National Insurance then it helps if you know what the rates actually are. Sorry dude, Must Try Harder.

Of course, when I say rates plural , I do mean plural. If you look at the official National Insurance rates list, you're far more inclined to harbour some sympathy for the man. Utterly. Insane.
