    I'd be interested to see a breakdown of which tax measures have impacted which income groups. Clearly the increase in the tax threshold has a major impact at the lower end.

    I'm always annoyed when Labour say something like 'They're giving the millionaires a tax cut, and doing nothing for working families'.

    1) They've raised the TAX free allowance to £10000
    2) YOU want to replace their 0% TAX rate with a 10% one, hardy good for hard working families!
    3) The OBR say lowering the top TAX rate will increase TAX revenues, good for working families because you can therefore charge them less TAX.
    4) Every year under government you had a 40p top TAX rate, we now have a 45p one!

    It must be a brilliant policy if that's the only criticism you can come up with!

    You cannot make me. Seriously. On this issue I think he's trying to win votes, it is what politicians do to spread their influence and give jobs to the big boys in their party.

    What are you trying to say- you don't seem to have any real criticism of the policy?

    Whenever a politician has a good policy he must be doing it to get tactical votes. Is that what you're saying?
