Go on, break the spine of the country, Dave

The man is either a charlatan, a non-comp or under orders, via Osborne, to break the middle class who pay everyone else’s benefits.

But speaking to The Andrew Marr Show, Mr Cameron said the introduction of the National Living Wage and continued increases to the personal tax allowance would protect the poorest.

He said: “We have had the vote in Parliament on tax credits and I think people respect this argument that the National Living Wage – a 50p increase next year, so a £20-a-week pay rise, rising to £9 by the end of this Parliament – that is a very significant change that really helps to make work pay rather than a tax credit system that recycles money back to people.”

Sophistry, rhetoric, spin. To hit homemakers is beyond words. The poorest will always be looked after – it is the poor sods in the middle who are being squeezed. This is a conservative?

    The biggest problem is it’s gradual. If Osborne had announced that tax credits would be scrapped and the tax allowance hiked to match the old level, he would have been castigated.

    As regards child benefit, that too is being gradually reduced. It needs shredding and replacing with a tax credit to married couples. My only thought there is what about those who have adopted.

    The hilarious waffle about the minimum wage is that of that ‘£20’ a third is taken directly, likely £7. Then the added taxes on that, say another £2. In reality, it’s barely £2 a day. For an eight hour day that’s 25p an hour more. It’s pointless. If he really wanted to help ‘the poor’ he would have scrapped council tax – equating to the same amount, or employee NI. But no. He won’t. He likes taxes.

      Catching the Fs in their lies is one thing, getting the public aware of it is another.

    Divide and rule still dividing and ruling.
