Now cut tax
IF both the Tories and Labour are certain to keep taxes high, what real choice will we have at the next election?
What’s left, if the Tories are no longer the low-tax party?
A personality contest? Partygate Boris versus Shifty Starmer, attempted destroyer of 17.4million Brexit votes? That is not good enough.
Rishi Sunak needs to re-establish his party’s traditional appeal fast with an election in two years or under.
The Sun does not yet share the despair of some Tories over this week’s emergency windfall tax bailout.
The Chancellor’s critics have amnesia about the dire circumstances that led to it.
Covid and a catastrophic war are monumental global problems no other modern Government has had to handle.
They left millions of Britons facing hardship beyond their experience.
We needed emergency help and, imperfect though it might be, Rishi has provided it.
But the Tories ARE sunk if their next move, perhaps a third bailout later this year, is not a major cut to the highest tax burden in 70 years.
Labour’s instincts will always be to spend more and keep taxes sky-high.
Voters need to know the Tories will let them keep far more of their money. It is critical to the Conservatives’ appeal.
Rishi fancies himself as a low-tax Chancellor. He urgently needs to prove it.
THE best way for police to connect with their communities is by preventing and solving crime for them.
Not by pathetic hip-hop dad-dancing routines making them a laughing stock.
How many hours did these cops spend rehearsing this brainless wokery?
London’s crime is off the charts. Its Met Police is a scandalous mess of politically-correct ineptitude crying out for its first competent leader in years.
That means a chief who will get cops off Twitter and TikTok, bin the virtue-signalling idiocy and focus solely on protecting the citizens they are meant to serve.
WHY does the BBC find it so hard to grasp the basics of how to be politically neutral?
Its Partygate hysteria was bad enough.
Then yesterday it tried to hire an outspoken Labour campaigner as a supposedly impartial Radio 5 Live presenter.
Socialist toff Matthew Stadlen publicly pours bile over the Tories and Brexit, brands Boris a “lying law-breaker” (though Starmer is “decent and sensible”) and three weeks ago considered becoming a Labour MP.
He’s entitled to those views.
But not to front a publicly-funded station meant to be unbiased politically — a penny which only dropped last night after an outcry.
The truth is that a Labour Government is the licence fee’s only hope.
So the BBC’s journo-activists will stop at nothing to put Starmer in No10.
