10% tax rate

With the abolition of the 10% band of tax announced in the Budget last year, the Labour MPs were cheering it to the rafters in the usual blind-faith unthinking way that a well-whipped bunch of no-brains do.

Having had 12 months to think about it, the massed ranks of sheep didn't think about it.

Within minutes of its implementation they were up in arms, screaming about the unfairness of it, and how 'they would fight' the legislation they had cheered and implemented.

Treasury Ministerial Aide (i.e. junior bag carrier) Angela Smith went further and announced her intention to resign from the Government as a result of her principled opposition to the policy that she had voted through last year.

So far so principled, until Gordon Brown nobbled her and she withdrew her now non-existent resignation.

Good to see that our politicians are not scared to take a position and stick to it.

There's some more good reading on the tax change here. That's a big change for the lowest earners!
