In a surprising Pre-Budget report Alastair Darling has sensationally made black eye-brow dye both Tax free and Tax deductible.
Other surprising Tax breaks amongst the raft of new proposals in the pre budget report are Tax credits for people with Scottish accents and also Tax free domicile status for people that look like children's TV characters from the 1960's and 70's.
Opposition leaders have proclaimed this as just mere pandering to the governments core support, Conservative Shadow Chancellor George Osborne stated
"This is exactly the type of self serving behaviour we have come to expect from this government I promise to redress the situation with my tax breaks for the ordinary working Etonian man. Unfortunately, unlike some people I could mention most of us don't have the good fortune to look like Parker from Thunderbirds. I think these oiks need to start living in the real world, anyway cant stop I have a Russian oligarchs yacht party to attend"
When challenged in the commons that these Tax breaks were badly timed in these times of economic crisis Bagpuss lookalike Gordon Brown yawned then refused to comment.
