Take Action: Abolition of 10p Tax Rate

Outrage | 20.04.2008 11:03 | Social Struggles | Workers' Movements

Brendan Barber, head of the TUC, has strongly criticised the abolition of the 10p tax rate. Barber has voiced concerns that the government has been paying far too much attention to the "siren voices of those campaigning to the super rich and the corporate elite."

The abolition of the 10p tax rate will mean that the basic rate will now become 20p. This is effectively doubling the amount of tax people who earn under £18,000 a year will have to pay. This is about 5 million people in the UK.

Please take action against this ultra-regressive tax by voicing your opinions with HM's treasury.
