Sunday 6th of April 2008 will go down as the day Labour shamed our country and themselves. Tomorrow 5.3 million of the lowest income families will be paying more income tax and national insurance.
Low income families with annual earnings between £5,931 and £15,075 will be on average £152.40 worse off – following the cutting of the ten per cent income tax band and changes to National Insurance. More and more will have to rely on the tax credits system – if they can claim.
THIS IS INDEFENSIBLE.
