Letter to Editor: Thanking Robert Halfon for budget that “cuts taxes of rich and the benefits of the poor

Dear Editor, 

I WOULD like to thank Robert Halfon MP and his Conservative colleagues for their new budget, which will cut the taxes of the rich and cut the benefits of the poor.  

It is estimated that those with an annual income of one million pounds will each be better off by £55,000 per annum, whereas some low paid workers in receipt of Universal Credit will have their incomes reduced.  

It is only right that poor people with trivial concerns such as feeding their children should make sacrifices in order that rich people can continue to afford to pay for private school fees for their children, holiday homes, and yachts. 

I was a little concerned a few years ago when Mr Halfon was claiming that the Conservative Party is a workers’ party. I would be grateful if he would thank his colleagues in the government for confirming that the Conservative Party is indeed the political wing of the bourgeoisie.  

Nye Bevan, the founder of the National Health Service, once described Conservative politicians as “lower than vermin”, but I am sure that he would revise this opinion were he alive today.   

Yours sincerely  

John Wake

Agreed with the sentiments expressed by Mr Waite. But, some very serious issues that need to be brought out. Anyone who follows Your Harlow will know that Harlow Council fraud started at Mr Halfon's meeting back in 2010 and lasts to this day with Mr Halfon knowing false records and damage being done to our property and he allows it. Secondly with regards to the Government, they are cutting taxes and crossing their fingers - there is no investment or stimulation of businesses. Thirdly, we have a shortage of labour with job vacancies so how are you to get growth when businesses cannot recruit? And, finally, we are in a recession and may not be in such a bad state if we had not left the EU - and Liz Truss cannot get a trade deal with the USA! The UK is heading for economic disaster with law breading rife and lack of any standards!!! A handful of Conservatives have voted in Liz Truss who clearly is unfit to run the Country. Is that why she adopted Boris Johnson's strategy in her election campaign to say nothing - and even avoided attending Nick Robinson's interview?

Sorry, that should read "law breaking rife and lack of any standards!!" Government is to cut regulations, that will also impact the poor and less well off. Nobody voted for this high risk strategy - particularly not the "Red Wall". This is a complete change of policy from their election promises and gone are the leveling up agenda and thus requires the WHOLE OF THE UK to vote whether we want this government to take us down this very risky and dangerous road.

The Conservative Party is the Workers' Party. One could argue that bond dealers, foreign currency speculators and hedge fund managers are workers. More correctly, the Conservative Party should be called the 1 in 20 Party, because they look after the top 5%.

The poor blame the rich for having all the money, and the rich blame the poor for sponging off of them, and comments and letters like this just re enforce the division. Maybe working together instead of looking for blame when things go wrong might be a bit more productive. After all united we stand and divided we fall, and there are far too many people driving division these days, so it’s not really surprising thing seem to be getting worse.

Should of been a public vote, a general election.

Kim O’Connor why? Labour did not call an election when Callaghan succeeded Wilson not when Brown succeeded Blair. We have a Parliamentary democracy. We do not vote for the PM. We vote for MPs. No leader of any party is elected by the public. A General Election is required by law until January 2024 latest. People need to be more aware of how our system operates in order to avoid these mistakes. Several commentators point out that some of these policies do not accord with the 2019 manifesto. Yes, the 2019 manifesto was highly defective in not accounting for the 2020/21 Covid Pandemic nor Putin’s Illegal war of aggression in the Ukraine, the consequences of which has been the main driver of global inflation.
