Robbing Oil to pay for Rock.

What's the betting our dearly beloved leader will come up with a "Windfall" tax on Energy Companies of about £3bn. Just enough to fund the £3bn needed to prop up Northern Rock and it's jobs in the Labour Heartlands.

Job done, profits from well run businesses supporting thousands of jobs are used to prop up irresponsible and criminally stupid business which deserved to fail. I wonder where we have seen this before.
