The 2017 Tory manifesto is badly laid out. Clearly rushed, though they would have had enough time to bullet point it a bit! Here’s the worst of it…….
Scrapping Free School Meals for infants – https://inews.co.uk/essentials/news/education/theresa-may-branded-lunch-snatcher-free-school-meals-dropped/
Scrapping the Triple Lock – https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/3588313/theresa-may-pension-triple-lock-taxes-conservative-manifesto/
Scrapping the Tax Lock – David Cameron’s tax “triple lock”, which guaranteed there would be no rise in national insurance, VAT or income tax, will be scrapped in favour of a general statement of intent to lower tax and simplify the tax system. There will be no increase in the level of VAT. Source: Telegraph 18th May 2017
The manifesto clearly opens the way for future rises in both income tax rates and national insurance at a future budget. The pledge not to increase the level of VAT does not rule out extending its scope to other goods and services. Source: Guardian 18th May 2017
Scrapping the Hunting Ban – http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politics/theresa-officially-pledges-fox-hunting-10447278
Scrapping the 2015 Manifesto promise of a social care cap – Instead she has cut the middle classes – defined as anyone who owns a home worth more than £100,000 (which will be most home owners) – adrift from state help
Winter Fuel Allowance will be means tested to pay towards social care
No mention of the Rail Fare Cap – has it been scrapped?
Immigration – To get it down to the tens of thousands….3rd time lucky……
Imagine being a Tory activist excited about the above and trying to sell it on the doorstep!
