    It is silly to try and say that middle class people are having it worst under this government when they still get substantially more than the working/underclass.
    It's silly to try to argue that an income reduction in real terms of 5.5% is a worse decline than 3.4%. It's a larger percentage and actual amount circumstantially, and given that the context implies that 3.4% is those working, they should still have enough. If you can't live full time NMW+any benefits you may be eligible for, you're doing something seriously wrong. But I know I'm not going to persuade you since, like so many, you're the stubborn socialist who has spent their whole life living off handouts and thinks it should remain that way forever more (until you eventually turn to the dark side, which won't be for a few years at least)

    This is true. It's virtually a crime to be poor in London.

    the conservative government are creating ways for businesses to get away from paying taxes and a way around this is also to tax the middle class more as they don't have the means to tax dodge.

    The illogical idea that if you give the rich more money they'll work harder, but if you give the poor less money they'll work harder is baffling to say the least.
