Boris on Tax

This article from Boris in The Telegraph today. Well worth a read.

" It is no consolation to her (RAF employee) to say that interest rates are low. She has no mortgage. It's the tax that's making her life so much harder — the huge amount the state claws back from the derisory sum it gives her. "

"So when those Labour people come on and say it's only the greedy Tories who care about tax cuts, think of the lady who keeps the helicopters flying, and her unbearable cheerfulness."

"...much of Middle Britain doesn't feel the impact of tax in the way that low-paid personnel in the Armed Services feel it, and it is people like the helicopter lady who should have the first call on our protection and support."
