Taxes Up £9,000 Under Labour 9 January 2007

Posted by David in Conservatives, Labour.

The average family pays £9,000 more tax per year since Labour came to power. For some strange reason David Cameron instead decided to focus on the fact that “mortgages leapt £1,937, heating and lighting £250 and council tax £80. But average earnings rose just £668 to £18,252” in the last year.

Would this not have been a good time to pledge to cut taxes?

The Sun also has a debate entitled “Do we need another Maggie?” It looks as if the general consensus is YES, apart from a few far-left former miners still claiming mining was sustainable, not-subsidised (how did they work out this?) and that there was a peace deal on the table for the Falklands (there was, it said we surrender to a fascist dictator and ignore the islanders).

As I read through the comments I was wondering “how long until that crazy ranting about the Belgrano and the exclusion zone off of that 1982 Question Time appears?” – the answer is page 4. When will it sink in that the 100 mile exclusion zone applied up until the deadline, after which all vessels deemed a threat were targets (I generally find enemy battleships a threat whether they are heading away (to behind a sandbank) or not). The Argentines agreed (until they sniffed possible compensation).

One point I can agree on, “Thatcher destroyed the working class.” Yes indeed, she made them the new property owning middle class. I don’t think this is how the lefties mean it though…
