The Tory have implemented Tax cut - which corbyn and McDonnell are supporting, but which have the labour party up in arms - and quite rightly.

 

Little Corbyn mini-me mc says they wont oppose tax cuts for the needy - what bullhooks

 

Tax cuts, of which reportedly roughly half goes to the top 10%, and roughly 90% to the richest 50%

 

But where is this money coming from?

 

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2018/mar/10/poverty-benefits-families-cuts-austerity-hammond-poor-welfare

 

"the changes from April will save around £2.5bn and dent the incomes of the “just about managing” families that Theresa May has vowed to help."

 

"The cuts will affect around 11 million families, including 5 million of the struggling families that the prime minister stated she would focus on."

 

 

 

 

So they have taken 2.5bn off the poorest to pay for those tax cuts mainly to the richest, and given a smidgen back to the poorest who pay for it.

 

 

and Corbyn and McDonnell support the Tories no matter the cost to the people ... as usual ...

Exactly the same benefits and no one is threatening our place in the single market - Vote Leave

£288 million pounds a week - The ADDITIONAL cost of Brexit customs bureaucracy alone - stuff that on the side of a bus.

My income is in the bottom 1% but I still get a tax cut because of the increased personal allowance. I dont claim any benefits so no-one can lump me into the labour party's "poor" who are actually better off than me.

dont forget the higher earners also got that tax cut you got - and more added on top despite the fact they were already getting more income in their pockets

 

So you got a small bounty

They got that small bounty as well + two mars bars and a twix extra.

 

as 50% apparently went to the top paid 10%

- they could have given the poorer twice as much - and the top 10% would have still got the same as you

eg everybody gets a medium bounty.

 

(not entirely good math but a very good point)

 

If 90% went to the highest paid 50%, they could have given a lot more to the lower end and the top earners would still have got it too.

... and THAT would have made a real difference to the poorer tax payers.

Nobody with the same household demographic to yours is better off than you when receiving benefits only. That is Tory rhetoric to justify benefit cuts, don't fall for the misinformation.

Neither are the ones (benefits or not) who dont actually have enough income to pay tax even pre 'increase'

 

.. and I'm NOT talking about those routing their income through their wifes domiciled n Monaco or a PO box in the IoM ... just those who have to live on less than the tax start threshold.
