Hain edits speech after rebuke from Prime Minister

Peter Hain, speaking in Cardiff this evening, amended his widely trailed speech about possible changes in taxation rates, by denying there are any plans to raise taxes.

Nevertheless his trailed remarks prior to the speech have triggered widespread comments from various Labour-types that they would quite like to tax the rich; I paraphrase, but that is the general tone of the comments by Labour's new generation of class warriors.
