Keir Starmer today 14:02 - Mar 6 with 3727 viewsSullutaCreturned

Good to see him really on the offensive, having a proper go at the tories.

I know some will disagree but for me he should have been doing it for months, in politics, why not kick the oppo when they are down?

In his own words "what is the point of a party that is out of touch, oit of ideas and nearly out of road"

Keir hasn’t needed to say much. The Tories have been shooting themselves in the foot and running the country into decline for years. The public can see that.
He is a clever guy who will do his talking at the right time.

He always has a go at them but then goes quiet or is not sure what to say when asked what would he do.

I'd wager that a large percentage of posters on here no longer work. Are they not in Starmers plans.

There’s an article in the Telegraph praising the way Labour reacted to the budget, which was basically saying nothing because they don’t need to and letting the press, public and conservatives themselves tear lumps out of Hunt.
The Telegraph also noted that Hunt had introduced a Labour policy which he and other Conservatives had previously dissed. (Non doms). The Telegraph also noted the lack of an OBR appraisal. I

Which.

There are a large percentage of posters on here that no longer work, yes there are by reading the posts by individuals.

As they are not the "working people" he continues to talk about, it is fair to ask are they in his plans. There seems to be no mention of his plans for pensioners which many on here are and some will be in the life of the next parliament.

Yesterday's budget was detrimental to the older generation, by cutting national insurance and not the tax rate and not raising thresholds. What will a Labour government do to rectify this.

I've got 11 years til retirement, hefully Labour has done something by then!

The state pension will rise though, 8.5% wasn't it, 221 per week. Not a massive amount but if you have an occy pension you may be ok.

It may rise by 8.5% but 8.5 million will pay 20% tax on that because the thresholds have not risen. Why was the 2% not taken off income tax.

Because the economy is in such a poor state that the country can’t afford it. We really can’t afford the NI cut either but it’s an electoral bribe. It costs almost double to cut income tax than to cut NI.

Last night Rachel Reeves came up with working people six times in a brief interview
Who are working people?
It’s a rhetorical question and one that politicians use to BS.

Even professional criminals “ work” but they are not “ working people”

We need to end this labelling

But they use the term to label,brand,stigmatise and patronise
Professional people are NOT refers to as such. Politicians do not refer to themselves as such.
Would a barrister refer to himself as “ working class” or one of the working people .
Similar with a doctor

It is utter shite and grinds my gears .

Many “ working people” are simply sloths relying on real working people to keep them and their families

Thats a fair point. But with the budget change costing 8.5 million pensioners £1,000 a year and all those pensioners obviously of voting age, you would think Starmer would say something. Or is he getting complacent.

Starmer is doing the sensible thing, saying nothing and letting the press, pensioners and Conservative MP’s criticise the Chancellor and rip the budget apart. Why does he need to unnecessarily alienate himself to a huge group of the electorate when he has no power to affect the outcome? The Telegraph recently “praised” the way Starmer and Labour’s response to the budget - which was to say very little!!

The reduction in NI is less expensive than a similar reduction in tax would be, and with pensioners getting anything between a £690 and £900 rise depending on what pension they are on they’ve not done too badly since ver the last few years, I’d argue better than many people who work. Hunt has maintained the triple lock, but what he’s given in one had he’s taken away in the other with the freezing of the tax threshold and the reduction in NI which won’t impact unless the pensioner still works.

Working needs to be made to pay and we need to encourage people to work because they pay for everything and we can’t have a situation where people are better off on benefits than in work. As the reduction in NI will only apply to those who work it may encourage people to take employment, but at the bottom end the benefits of the 2p cut aren’t great.

It impacts the majority of pensioners who have private pensions.

Pensioners don't pay NI on earnings. They become exempt when they reach state pension age.

Exactly so the 2% cut means nothing while we pay 20% tax on the pension increase. This is the point.

State pension alone, doesn't reach the threshold for paying income tax. Tax, is calculated on your income combined

From April I’ll be paying a small amount of income tax on my state pension alone.
