    The trouble with the PBR is that the details matter, not the headlines. The speech will be written to generate crowd-pleasing headlines but deep analysis matters more than live-blogging. So keep your eyes open. For example we remember how the Daily Mail and backbenchers roared with approval when the basic rate of income tax was cut but behind this stunt came the 10p tax rate fiasco.
