Economists warn chancellor not to use tax cut bribes

Gordon Brown, the "UK" chancellor could spend extra cash in the run up to the "UK" general election to BUY VOTES. However, leading economists warn it could lead to higher interest rates, an unbalanced economy, and jeopardize British entry to the euro.

Of course Blair does NOT want to join the Euro. He'd rather hurt all industry in Scotland and England than hurt his friends and Nu-Labour converts in the City of London financial houses who make a fortune off currency and interest rate fluctuations.

Higher interest rates would keep the pound overvalued , damaging both exporters and prolonging the problem of the so-called "two-speed economy".
