At Prime Ministers Questions today local MP Ian Murray asked the Prime Minister “my hard pressed constituents in Edinburgh South are angry that his priority in the budget was to give a tax cut worth £40,000 to “millionaires”. Will he tell the House that thanks to his reduction in the top rate of income tax how much his cabinet are collectively better off as a result of this out if touch choice?”.
The Prime Minister failed to answer Ian’s point, who went on to say “It is disgraceful that hard working families in South Edinburgh are being forced to pay for this huge tax cut for the millionaires on the Government front bench. The Prime Minister stated his government would be the most transparent ever, the silence at Prime Ministers Questions was deafening. The only people that are “all in this together” are pensioners and ordinary people all over Edinburgh South subsidising out of touch decisions that benefit those most well off .
