50p's time is up...only if the 3 party politics is up
Of course, figures might suggest that the tax is not very effective but let's think about the Politicians who are leading us. I am struggling to think of a more anti-business set of politicians, the last Labour Government included. They raise VAT, put up the 50p tax, bash any kind of money making culture, reduce capital allowances for investment, won't back their own back to work schemes. More likely, they raise more taxes on property and gift more away in benefits.
As a political strategy this they hope will eek back the ground against Labour. The consensus of anti-business sentiment in the 3 main political parties is strong. Only the Tories should offer salvation but they take their votes of the self-employed and business focused citizens for granted.
It will be a long time before anyone in our political system moves to a pro-business start. It's time for UKIP or other parties to try and lead this charge as those in the lights as the moment have shown they are not up to it.
