Who Is Going To Listen To This Government

Recommended Posts

Mr Darling recently called for restraint on wage inflation to keep general inflation under control, this is all well and good but with the rising cost of food and energy what are people supposed to do? Ok it may be short term and its out of the governments control so just stick with your 3% wage increase and all will be ok within a year or two.

But then you have taxes, these are within government control so you would think that car tax, TV license, Council Tax etc would all either be frozen or increased at the 3% the chancellor has told us to accept as wage inflation.

Not a chance, council tax set to rise 5% again next year, car tax is being re jigged so many families will see their average family 2litre car increase by 20%, alcohol went up about 5% in the last budget and so did tobacco.

Who is going to listen to a Government who tells us that 3% is a high enough increase in the wage packet and then increases their own taxes well above that, in theory making us poorer than what we were a year ago.

I forgot, there will be no more boom and bust!!!!

Not when the average homeowner is going to have less at the end of each month in his / her pocket to service a mortgage
