Harriet Harman, Labour’s Deputy Leader, has finally let the cat out of the bag: Labour want to raise your taxes.

In a radio interview, she said:

‘Yes I think people on middle incomes should contribute more through their taxes’

(Source: LBC phone-in, 14th July 2014)

Ed Miliband has defined those on middle incomes as “people either side” of £26,000 a year (Source: Ed Miliband, BBC Breakfast, 28 February 2011). So Harriet Harman’s confession means that millions of hardworking taxpayers would pay the price for a Labour Party that hasn’t learnt its lesson.

Labour want you to foot the bill for their plans to spend more and borrow more - and they’ve floated a number of tax rises if they win the next election:  

-          A new tax on the family home (Source: Ed Miliband’s Speech in Bedford, 14 February 2013)

-          A rise in National Insurance (Source: Observer, 20 April 2014)

-          Higher fuel duty (Source: Ed Miliband, Labour Press Conference Q&A, 11 January 2011)

-          A new tax on farms (Source: Mail on Sunday, 8 June 2014)

-          A graduate tax (Source: Emily Thornberry MP on Daily Politics, BBC Two, 2 April 2014)

-          A rise in corporation tax (Source: Financial Times, 24 September 2013).

-          A new tax on pensions (Source: Liberal Conspiracy, 20 September 2013; HM Treasury, Budget 2013, March 2013, Table 2.1).

When they were in government, Labour raised taxes by £1,400 per family (Source: IFS, Tax and Benefit reform under Labour, p.24, 7 April 2010).

By contrast, the Conservatives have frozen fuel duty and cut income tax for 25 million hardworking taxpayers, making families more financially secure.

Don’t let Labour hit hardworking taxpayers again. Share this post on Facebook and Twitter and help stop Labour’s plans to make you pay more tax.
