Labour to launch new campaign on “Millionaire’s tax cut”

25th February, 2013 2:28 pm

In the next few days Labour will be rolling out a new campaign in the next few days (perhaps as early as tomorrow) to target the implementation of George Osborne’s “Millionaire’s tax cut” whilst millions are simultaneously hit by real terms cuts to tax credits. The party will be seeking to put pressure on the Coalition with a combination of  including regional leafleting, direct mail letters and online adverts  as we begin to approach the budget.

A Labour source told LabourList this afternoon that “we think the next 40 days are a significant time for the government”. That means as well as seeking to pressure Osborne ahead of the budget, the party will also be hoping to drive through the message in April as millions start to feel the pinch.

    So the politic of envy rather than addressing the £1.47 Trillion national debt?

    This is a great idea. Labour cuts taxes for the many at the bottom end, Tories for the few at the top. Accentuates the 10p tax rate, which is the best political coup Labour has had in a long while.

    Tessa Jowell still ahead in mayoral race, poll shows

    The Evening Standard have released the results of their latest Mayoral poll, to see who Londoners would most like to be Labour’s candidate. And it’s good news for Tessa Jowell. Since YouGov last did this poll for the Standard, Margaret Hodge and Andrew Adonis have dropped out the race (the former hasn’t formally backed anyone yet, while the latter has thrown his weight behind Jowell). YouGov asked 1,011 people who they thought the best candidate would be for mayor. They […]

    Scottish Labour are once again campaigning on things that matter to people

    I admit that the recent Ashcroft Polls were yet another punch in the guts for the Scottish Labour Party. Based on these figures, the SNP are set to win 56 out of 59 seats in May, with even Gordon Brown’s seat falling to the Nationalists. And the reason is pretty clear – why would anyone who voted Yes in September vote for Labour now? And yet I can’t help thinking that there is a definite, detectable movement in public perception.

    Disagreement over Trident wouldn’t stop the SNP from supporting Labour policies, says Sturgeon

    Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister of Scotland and leader of the SNP, has said that her party would support Labour as a minority government on a policy-by-policy basis, even without a deal on Trident. The SNP are staunchly opposed to Trident. Sturgeon has in the past implied that Labour’s position on the subject, which is to review Trident but remain “committed to a minimum, credible independent nuclear deterrent”, could stop the SNP supporting a minority Labour government – if that were […]

    Cameron’s Cowardice shows the collapse of modern Conservatism

    The Conservative electorate strategy is to contrast their ‘strong leadership’ (as it says on their website) with Labour’s supposed weakness and vacillation. David Cameron is the man with a strategy, Ed Balls stutters and Ed Miliband dangerously doesn’t know what he’s talking about. It boils down to endlessly repeating the same line about a ‘long term economic plan’, although the plan itself gets cut and reshaped as every new stache of statistics comes out. Remember, remember, the Tories ditched their original […]
