Saving Britain by taxing the rich (1)
Paul Mason

Labour is raising income tax to pay for the NHS and elderly care. It’s raising a wealth tax to pay for sending students to university for free. It’s reversing George Osborne’s cuts to corporation tax to pay for revolutionary new schools and skills system. And it will raise public sector pay using tax collected more efficiently from companies.

Well, it’s not doing any of those things — and it won’t, unless, by some miracle, it wins the election. One of the shoes — the manifesto — has dropped; the other one (the obvious one) will have to fall before any of all that can happen…

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
