Been there done that with the Department of Economic Affairs as was you step on HM Treasury's turf, perrape to get the big shafteroo, mebbe no this year, mebbe no 2011, but 2012 onwards? Ouchy-time for sure. Or does the chancellor actually want to be critiqued on an ongoing basis by an independent body he set up?Nah, it's a political gimmick to lend some spurious credibility to the we're only doing this because Labour were so bad rhetoric that will justify every budget/spending cut or tax rise made over the next however many years.It's also deeply unimaginative, like did anyone actually care about Labour's efforts to revisit the success of making the Bank of England independent by fiddling about with the ONS?
