Tax credit overpayment

It’s claw back time again

For the second year running thousands of low paid families will have to find money to pay back to the government.

Gordon Brown’s twin obsessions of centralising power around himself and means testing has created a system of benefits which hurt the very people that they are meant to help.

Rather than letting those on low pay keep more of their money in the first place by increasing tax thresholds Brown prefers to take the money off them, swill it around in the treasury for a while, give some of it back and then take some back again.

How this man has gained a reputation for competence is quite beyond me.
