Frankly, I don't give a fart in a high wind about the top rate of tax. If they reckon they can get more out of rich folks by taxing them in other ways than income then they probaly know what they're doing, and I'm never going to be a top rate tax payer, so I don't really care. What I DO care about is how they've funded the various tax cuts, including, I notice, a nice big cut in corporation tax for all those big companies who donate to the Tory party:
Duty on all tobacco products to rise by 5% above inflation from 18:00 today - the equivalent of 37p on a packet of cigarettes.

No change to existing plans on alcohol duty. [this means that beer duty will still rise at above inflation rates and that the supermarkets will still be at a massively unfair advantage compared to pubs]

New duty on gaming machines at a standard rate of 20% and a lower rate for low-prize machines of 5% of net takings. [because pubs make a little bit of profit on bandits, and we must find some new way to squeeze an industry before it dies completely]
Also random new taxes on "black beer" and angostura bitters (because that's going to raise literally, PENCE< the amount of it we sell in this country)


I reckon it's time to start jobhunting, don't you? I don't think my job is going to exist much longer.
