VAT up today

They just don't fookin get it do they?

They will take child benefit off "high earners" (44k) but you can have 2 in a household on 43k each on still get it!

So they fixed that by changing the higher rate of tax to 40k ! (still means you can have 2 in a houshold on 39k each and they get it):blink:

So now they put up vat - fookin' great. Its like getting a fire going by rubbing to sticks together, then shoving half a ton of coal on it - and then wondering why it went out!!!

The thick bastards.

We have a very perilous recovery, but this will just kill it off.

We need people to earn and spend - that way everyone wins - now people will stop spending and save. So the government will get LESS MONEY! Wholesalers and home manufacturers will suffer - people will lose there jobs (and calim dole) -they won't need as much transport so there will be less fuel bought - again less money coming in.

They should have reduced vat to encourage spending - not the other way round.

And before you jump on the "Labour left us in the hole" bandwagon - this new goverment borrowed more in November 2010 than Labour did in the same month 2009.

The bankers will still get there bonuses, schools won't be built - hospitals will be under funded - unemployment will go through the roof, and our con-dem lot will spend the next 10 years blaming the last lot - but hey, the bankers will be ok.

And as for them fookin lib-dems, Jebus! talk about principles out the window - just shows what they will do to get a whiff of power.

They all make me fookin sick

There- that's better:huh:

I hear what you are saying about fuel. But yes, we do have some control on how much fuel we use. The extra 2.5% on VAT could probably be offset by most folks by not taking the car for some of their shorter journeys and walking (with added health benefits) ..or combining errands (with a bit of planning) ..or car sharing ..or adjusting the way they drive... etc. :winkie:.... Sorted.

I am not being political

do a greater or lesser degree, they are all as bad as each other.

The Tories sold off all our "crown jewels" Gas/Electric/Water/Trains etc + de-regulated buses

But no government since has undone this folly

Its always the ordinary hard working folk that suffer - if you are you are either end of the scale, you do (relatively) ok
