Rebels press Osborne on capital gains

FT.com / UK / Politics & policy - Rebels press Osborne on capital gains.

The right wing are out to bring the Tories down.

As the FT notes:

George Osborne was under mounting pressure on Wednesday night from Tory MPs to offer significant concessions over the capital gains tax increase planned for next month’s Budget.

The ironic possibility of Labour having to save Osborne from his bank benchers on this issue is just too significant not to note.

But will they?

And what real chance is there for this coalition in the face of the madness of the Tory back benchers?
