    To that 40% should be added NI, making their total tax rate over 50%.

    That’s criminal.

    To cut State spending is imperative – which means raising the pension age – significantly so.

    Had it kept pace with life expectancy, the 65 yo man’s pension age of 1945 would now be 88.

    So the pension age should be raised to 90, w.e.f. 2020.

        you are right – both nics must be included – then it is arguable that ‘community charge’ should be included (since the politicos squimed out of calling it a property tax)

        then apply this to basic rate tax and we are at around 40% – this is the going rate and neither public nor politicos are bothered

Tony Blair threatens Ed:

“If you had a strong political lead that was combining the politics of aspiration with the politics of compassion, I still think that’s where you could get a substantial majority…  If I ever do an interview on [the state of the Labour Party], it will have to be at length…”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
