The other, harder project is to get more cash into people’s pockets.
Hmm, so, let’s think about how we might do that.
That’s the weakness in the Lib Dem obsession with raising tax thresholds, now backed by some Tories who are pressing for a further rise, from £10,000 to £12,500. It’s eye-catching, but ineffective. The best thing to do on thresholds would be to tackle national insurance, which still starts at £7,500.
We don’t put more cash in peoples’ pockets by failing to nick the cash from peoples’ pockets?
