Brown punishes the poor
I blogged yesterday that it looks as if Labour are trying to punish the poor with their new taxes. The budget has just been announced today and it seems I was right.
According to A Conservatives blog Gordon Brown has reduced taxes by 2p but he has scrapped the 10p rate of tax so you have to be earning something like £17,000 to be better off. If you are not you are worse off.
I thought Labour was supposed to help the poor? I thought Brown wanted to reduce inequality? It seems like he is increasing it again.
