An insult to their efforts

Have your say

I am absolutely astounded at the complete stupidity of this government policy. It makes no sense to attack the poor in this way.

People who need tax credits are amongst the most needy in society and are doing their very best to keep in work and provide for themselves and their families, contributing to our country’s productivity and their own independence.

They are already struggling and this policy seems to me like a huge insult to their amazing efforts which I thought was part of the whole point of working and living in our ‘democratic’ society.

Shame on the Government and it’s time they got out of their privileged backgrounds. Maybe not all, but get real.
