The battle over Labour’s planned 50 percent tax rate: Day 3

January 27th, 2014

I’ve just been on Radio 4’s the World at One talking about the polling on the 50% tax rate and Labour on the economy. I’ll post a link when it become avaiable.

The Tory attacks have been long and strong and, no doubt, this will be one of the big battles at GE2015 but just how important is managing the economy?

To my mind this from the recent Lord Ashcroft poll sets out the electoral impact. Will people vote for the party that will deliver for the country as a whole or the one they perceive as being best for themselves and their family.

I don’t have an answer.
