Mother-hating-psycho John Hutton defends the Labour government as it increases tax on the poorest. Now far be it from me to say mother-hating-psycho John Hutton is happy with this because of his hatred of his working class mother and his working class upbringing… But it’s worth considering. Oh yes thanks Labour government, really exemplifying your roots here-
Business Secretary John Hutton has ruled out a rethink on the decision to scrap the lowest tax band, amid claims Labour has abandoned low-paid workers. He said he did not think it possible to go back on a decision to scrap the 10p rate, despite Labour MPs’ unhappiness.
Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg told the BBC it was a “cheap political stunt” to allow a 2p cut in the basic tax rate at the expense of the poorest people. Mr Hutton said the move had to be seen as part of a wider package of tax cuts. From Sunday standard income tax is being cut by 2% to 20% but the lowest 10p band is being scrapped entirely.
Mr Clegg told the BBC earlier : “Over five million of the poorest people, it’s estimated with incomes between £5,000 and £18,000, are suddenly finding their starting rate of tax is doubling, why? So Gordon Brown could offer a 2p cut in the rate from 22p to 20p for the following day’s headlines. I think that is an outrageous political stunt at the cost of the poorest in British society.”
(ps. check the picture on that BBC story, c’mon he is a psycho & the beeb agrees!) God forbid they tax the rich who under their stewardship have grown richer at a higher rate than anyone while the poor got poorer and social mobility (although that there is a need for that demonstrates gross inequity & class stratification anyway) has declined…Under a Labour government. All neatly done over the weekend when the people worst affected get away from their wage slavery and escape & relax so they will know the least about it, nice.
