I am sick of hearing Labour Cabinet minister defending the abolition of the 10p tax band. It’s so pathetic they have lost all credibility. They have to hold their hands up and admit they’re robbing low paid single people of some of their income.
There’s no point in arguing how much better they all are since Labour came to power, or that they will sort it out sometime never. Just give them their money back. Take it out of my tax bill if it makes you feel better but stop being so stupid.
Just because people are single and low paid they aren’t stupid. Many of them are loving caring people like the staff who look after my son who has learning disabilities. They are low paid but they care. And at the moment Mr Darling, Ms Cooper, and the rest of you treasury wonks – you clearly don’t.
