The ol' John Smith trick?
As much as I would hate Corbyn anywhere near the tiller, I would fear John McDonnell more.
Do you remember the last three chancellors, including the incumbent?
Exactly, when you are trying to put out a fire, you don’t use petrol.
Sorry mucker, these fuckers never had a clue about running an economy that works. They've all presided over a scenario in which in individual can hold down a full time job and still not have enough money to live on without further assistance , in which two million people are in a state of permanent overdraft.
The policy choices they've made have been fucking useless. There's an old rule. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Most other developed countries can get away with charging around 26% corporation tax. I was certainly happy to pay it back in the day. What the fuck did the Tories fix by taking that money out of the economy?
Raising the Personal Allowance is another thing the neoliberals love to crow about.
"We've taken more people out of tax!", they say.
The problem is, to win that prize in the last "giveaway", you have to be earning less than £11.8k, and more than £11.5k. Those are the only people "taken out of tax" with the new threshold.
If you earn less, you were already out of tax, you lucky lucky £221 a week bastard.
The truth is that it's a tax break for everybody which means almost fuck all to anybody, unless it's pooled collectively. Billions lost from the exchequer over the year. Weekly to the individual, it's just shy of two quid a week.
Indefensible policy when you actually break it down.
And you worry about someone who actually fancies a structured economy.
Hang on a mo, in 2010 the personal allowance was 6475, now after a number of progressive changes,it will be almost 12k. Are you saying that this has been a shit policy?
BTW if is not a tax break for everybody. Once you hit a certain income, you lose the Personal allowance
