Well done BS, you completely got the wrong end of the stick. If only our strikers (if the can be called that) were as consistent as you.
Point 1 – raising tax through NI hits the poor far harder than the rich. You won’t pay any extra as I understand it, but neither will a lot of very wealthy and retired pensioners. We should be helping the working young people of this country, who have far more financial problems than the majority of our generation faced if we were in work. Instead the Tories have decided to tax the young low paid workers.
Point 2 – thousands of AFFORDABLE houses are needed for the young people in the UK who far outnumber the number of migrants. The affordable houses used to be Council houses with a decent rent. Instead landlords are getting richer by charging rents not far below a monthly mortgage. A large amount of Universal Credit is going direct to these landlords from working class Brits in work on low wages.
The Tories avoid taxing the rich. The NI rise should be matched with some form of wealth tax on rich individuals and from tax avoiding businesses. But we all know the Tories always run the country to suit them and their friends. Rewarding their supporters or blatant corruption???
