Quote of the Day

Lord Lawson advises George Osborne…

“If you earn £45,000, you are neither rich nor poor – you are in the middle. You are certainly not rich. No one on £45,000 should be paying a marginal rate of 40 per cent tax.”

    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

And i’ve noticed that 100% of Guido Fawkes staff are men. Looks like Guido has a woman problem. Or is it an hypocrisy problem?
