Julia Goldsworthy - The New Stephen Byers?
There's an interview with the fragrant Julia Goldsworthy in the Independent today. She's the new 27 year old LibDem Treasury Spokesman. Andy McSmith asks her at what level of income does someone start paying the higher rate of tax. "In the mid thirties," she replies. The answer is £32,400. She's then asked the question which tripped up Stephen Byers - what's 8x7? "Forty-two," she replies confidently. Inspires confidence that she will have a real grip on LibDem spending plans, doesn't it?
