    Official (if AtW allows) Labour Manifesto Thread

    There was another 'live' thread as it went on but let's have a proper thread now it's done?

    What have we got then?
    • 45% income tax on 80k, 50% on 123k
    • Special levees on companies with very high earners 330k+
    • No raises to NI or VAT
    • CT rising to 26%
    • Abolish tuition fees
    • Nationalise rail, postal service and water
    • Part-nationalisation of energy companies
    • free nursery provision for children 2-5
    • Triple lock pensions guaranteed
    • Brexit as long as it preserves British jobs


    What else...? Let's get it straight before we tear it apart

          Yep and some firefighters as well but I can't remember the numbers.

            Look in the mirror. You'll find the answer staring right back at you.

                Yes, I approve the Official status of this thread.

                This is very good reason to vote Lib Dems to replace Krazy Korbyn as the Official opposition.

                  Labour- Bankrupting the country for the many, not the few.
                  "The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance." Cicero
