UKIP Economic Spokesman Patrick O’Flynn launches an attack on Labour for offering working people a “total insult” tax policyPosted on April 28
UKIP Economics Spokesman Patrick O’Flynn has attacked Labour for offering working people a “total insult” tax policy. He said Labour had not pledged to raise the tax free personal allowance and calculated that its policy of bringing in a 10% starting rate of tax would be worth just 42p per week to the average worker – not even enough to pay for a second class stamp or a bag of peanuts.

“Our party has had as policy for many years the idea that people on the minimum wage should be taken out of income tax.

Any help for first time buyers is of course welcome, but there is a significant risk that all this measure will do is lead to further house price inflation as it changes neither the number of would-be buyers nor the number of properties available for sale. That nobody is actually dealing with the demand element of housing shows that the political class want to simply coax voters with flawed short term sweeteners rather than address the overall problem of a housing crisis in the UK."Continue reading...

UKIP Leader Nigel Farage: “The Labour Party is now running scared of UKIP. It has lost the big arguments on the impact of uncontrolled immigration on working class communities up and down the land.
“Working people have experienced at first-hand the wage compression, high youth unemployment, long housing waiting lists, struggle for school places, pressure on health services and loss of community cohesion ushered in by Labour’s open door approach.
“Labour is now haemorrhaging votes to UKIP as its traditional supporters come to realise how out of touch its privileged metropolitan leadership is from the lives of working people.Continue reading...
