TPA says 1970s-style agenda would be a disaster for the country

May 11, 2017 9:38 AM

Reacting to Labour's leaked draft manifesto, John O'Connell, Chief Executive of the TaxPayers' Alliance, said:

"This manifesto is a toxic mix of nationalisations, interventions and monumental tax hikes. A 1970s-style agenda would be a disaster for the country and the parties should instead be offering up policies that get the economy in shape to compete in the global marketplace. That means tax cuts for individuals and businesses to leave more money in the pockets of those who earned it, and cutting out wasteful spending so that resources go towards essential services."
