Apparently, according to Ms Rayner though not Mr Starmer, Labour would reverse the planned cut in Income Tax from 20% to 19% (ie. put it back to where it currently is) if they came to power, to which Natalie tweeted "Labour’s solution to tackle the cost of living? Grabbing more in taxes from the pockets of millions of hardworking British people. Same old Labour."
She really is showing her understandable desperation. It's been made quite clear that Labour will not reverse next year's cut in the basic tax rate from 20p to 19p. And in any event, what little help that may bring is eroded entirely by the refusal to raise basic tax thresholds from £12,500 and a 10% rate of inflation.
And now we have sterling plumetting again. How much does she think that will add to people's bills given our dependence on imports?
