Oh, yes and...
No change to the basic rate. Cool. Thanks Gordon. However:-
For all wage earners
Allowances will, again, not be increased in line with inflation (stealth income tax)
For all except the very lowest wage earners
NI will go up (stealth income tax)
For those (quite a lot) earning over £37,400 and being taxed at 40% on pay above that limit
The limit will, again, not be increased in line with inflation (stealth income tax)
For those (relatively few) earning over £100,000 but below £150,000
Allowances will be reduced to, ultimately, 0 (stealth income tax)
For those (even fewer earning over £150,000 and being taxed at 50% on pay above that limit
I'll bet now that this band limit won't go up in line with inflation either (stealth income tax)
Y'see, there's lies, damned lies, and statistics...
...and there's the amazing inability of the UK electorate to understand percentages - 20% of quite a lot is quite a lot, whereas 20% of not a lot is not a lot
