I'm moved, as I'm sure many other bloggers are, to question what the hell the Gov think they're up to abolishing the 10p tax rate? What were MPs and our unions playing at when this was first mooted? Only now does anyone show any signs of reaction and protest at the change, this plan could have been cut off when it was first suggested back when Brown was still Chancellor.
Also the plan to support those of us on low incomes through increased tax credits is totally cockhanded (basically this will mean tax us then credit it back to us in the form of a benefit at a later date - which, knowing our situation, will probably be subject to tax.) They very well know that the benefits system is complicated and difficult to navigate, thousands of people are not receiving what they're entitled to now, never mind when the new poor are added to the mix through this new tax law.
