Responding to the government’s u-turn on the top rate of income tax, Co-Director of Compassion in Politics Jennifer Nadel said:
“This is a victory for compassion and fairness. The overwhelming opposition this policy has faced has shown that the public want to see economic policies aimed at supporting the common good, not the interests of a minority. With this in mind, the government needs to re-evaluate its priorities. It ought to look at the support that it can provide to those in the most vulnerable circumstances - by, for example, raising the minimum wage and increasing social security - as well as empowering public bodies across the country to take action in the name of reducing inequality by finally adopting the socio-economic duty.”
Can we keep in touch?
