Mr Sunak said it was “reasonable, proportionate and fair” to exclude those with taxable profits above £50,000, including law partners, freelance journalists and other professionals. The chancellor said this group had average incomes of about £200,000.
Regular columnists in major papers maybe. Someone with a sideline in true crime books or ghosting ‘sleb stuff maybe. But your average freelance journo on £200k a year?
It is to larff.
As an actual journeyman (ie, not a name) freelance, and working like buggery (one entire newspaper or magazine piece a working day, which is proper work when you include research etc) mebbe £40k a year?
