“Who is reaping the rewards from this economy? For millions it is simply not working. We’re the only major developed country where growth has returned but workers are worse off.
There are some who are doing very well. The Chief Execs of big companies now paid 180 times more than the average worker and taxed less. All this adds up to £70 billion in tax giveaways.
Most shamefully, as of next month, women will have to prove that their 3rd child is a product of rape if they wish to qualify for a child tax credit for that child.
This was a budget of utter complacency. Today the Chancellor put the burden on the self employed. Entirely out of touch with the reality of life for millions.”
