Can You Afford Mr Brown

Recommended Posts

Families are being hit by an extra £1.5 billon a week in taxes since 1997 taxes have risen by 65%

In the last 12 months taxes have risen by 11% or £317m a week

Taxes are up 34% since labour came to power 1997

The treasury now takes £172 billion in direct taxes as opposed to £104 billion eight years ago

In 1997 we payed £69 billion in taxes this figure now up to £123 billion, in that time stamp duty has moved up from £2.4 billion to £7.5billion

Could the Tories govern better!!, lets face the British Legion could govern better than this mob.

Have you heard of inflation?

 

House prices have continued to rise since 1997 so the Stamp Duty tax bill is always going to be higher. The government increased the nil rate band of SDLT in this years budget (albeit to the equally useless 120k).

 

I don't understand why you don't just go and campaign for your local Tory councillor or stand yourself just to give us a bit of a rest from your constant griping.

Ps. Its you griping and me simply indicating facts from fiction and as for stamp duty at £120k that is the type of home any of us will be able to afford the longer this mob are in there ripping us off

So much is wasted on the on the NHS as they seem to pay out for specialist equipment whatever they are asked for and are being screwed by british companies who know that they will pay.A good example is ; i have a lad with cerebal palsy who got a special chair from the NHS.We were given the invoice by mistake and it was for £600 from a company based in Birmingham.When on Holiday in Granada Spain i saw the same the same chair made by the same British manufacturers on sale for the eqivalent of £180.

Indeed. Great "facts." You can prove anything you want with a few statistics.

Pabird, in modern Britain there is very little ideological difference between the three main parties - it is a case of voting for the least worst option.

The Tories would be well advised to focus on presenting a credible opposition. Much as Kinnock's Labour party allowed the worst excesses of the Thatcher era to pass unchecked, their ineptitude in the past two parliments has allowed Brown and Blair to do pretty much what they wanted - more often than not the most effective opposition came from the labour back benches. Hague, IDS and Howerd have allowed the Conservatives to stgnate. If they choose Davies or Fox as leader they'll get what they deserve - another 10 years on the sidelines.

Unusual Simon but I agree, they should attempt to keep active the prospective leaders making a very solid contribution at present plus get Hague up-front for an extended period

Sad to say but I expect the losers plus Hague to go back to whence they came and continue making money in their"otherjobs"

Also in modern GB you can be a proven liar and stay in office, but to be honest! Let’s have committed Tories believing in what they say and do rather than converted Tories hanging on to power as labour MPs and labour PMs
