My calculations as to the additional costs of the Lib Dem local income tax were wildly out. The bean counters at Conservative Campaign HQ have been doing the maths and it seems that I have underestimated the costs. Here is what CCHQ say:
Local income tax would shift the tax burden onto hard working families, and cost many Londoners almost £1,500 a year more. Liberal Democrat politicians in London’s town halls already charge the highest council taxes and now their politicians in Westminster want soaring income taxes.
I don’t know what the average Lib Dem does for a living but they must all be on big money if they think that we are not paying enough taxes already. Perhaps they have money to burn.
