Holding down public sector pay rises to 2% for three years, only half next year\’s expected private sector increase, will increase inequality.
How so? As public sector pay is, on average, higher per hour than private, holding down public sector pay will reduce inequality, surely?
Private equity types laughed all the way to their merchant banks, having expected a much higher tax than 18%. They still pay less than their cleaners.
Again, hunh? The rich pay more tax than the poor. So she must mean they pay a lower rate: hmm……how many of these cleaners pay any CGT? So their rate is zero, is it not?
