HARLOW MP Robert Halfon has told the Daily Telegraph why he is backing the “New deal the Chancellor has offered to working families” over working tax credits.

Mr Halfon said: “We have to move away from the high welfare, high tax, low wage economy ‎that Labour created to one that offers the opposite: lower welfare, lower taxes and higher wages for all. From a hand-out society to a hand-back country, where taxpayers keep more of the money they have earned.

Typically for a Tory Mr Halfon proposes a model that will be fantastic for the rich ... or, at least, the greedy rich. The majority of working people need schools, hospitals, fire and police services with significant investment - a low tax economy provides NO investment but allows the wealthy to keep excess income. We need an economy with fair taxation - where the wealthy and big business contribute far more than they currently do - and the Government of the day needs to be able to invest in real jobs, schools, hospitals and affordable housing. We desperately need a society for the many - not for the few.
