They just don't fookin get it do they?
They will take child benefit off "high earners" (44k) but you can have 2 in a household on 43k each on still get it!
So they fixed that by changing the higher rate of tax to 40k ! (still means you can have 2 in a houshold on 39k each and they get it)
So now they put up vat - fookin' great. Its like getting a fire going by rubbing to sticks together, then shoving half a ton of coal on it - and then wondering why it went out!!!
The thick bastards.
We have a very perilous recovery, but this will just kill it off.
We need people to earn and spend - that way everyone wins - now people will stop spending and save. So the government will get LESS MONEY! Wholesalers and home manufacturers will suffer - people will lose there jobs (and calim dole) -they won't need as much transport so there will be less fuel bought - again less money coming in.
They should have reduced vat to encourage spending - not the other way round.
And before you jump on the "Labour left us in the hole" bandwagon - this new goverment borrowed more in November 2010 than Labour did in the same month 2009.
The bankers will still get there bonuses, schools won't be built - hospitals will be under funded - unemployment will go through the roof, and our con-dem lot will spend the next 10 years blaming the last lot - but hey, the bankers will be ok.
And as for them fookin lib-dems, Jebus! talk about principles out the window - just shows what they will do to get a whiff of power.
They all make me fookin sick
There- that's better
