gee thanks...

..for that 2pence from income tax. What with cutting the bottom rate of income tax, for people like me, part timers, and for people working many hours on poor pay scales that at best will make bugger all difference.

And why tax cuts anyway? Possibly public money is not being spent on the right things (I could certainly make a few suggestions) but if there is indeed too much public money lets start with the tax that dare not speak its name and take away charging for personal care. Lets accept that if - rightly - wealthy people still get their rubbish collected and still have their kids go to state schools that charging people with modest savings for having their arses wiped and their needs met in a minimal way is due to change.
