    surely they should have made all key workers exempt from the personnel tax threshold until 2026

    This country relied on them so much the last year quiet monkfish .

    I hope the opposition parties kick up a fuss about this

    Dont forget that the Senedd has tax raising powers and can do it's own thing with regards to Income Tax.
    Wouldn't surprise me if they brought in a lower rate and an extra higher rate sometime during the next parliament.

    Agreed, who cares if the PM won’t tell us how many children he’s got or that he once arranged to have someone beat up, he’s a laugh and he got Brexit done.

    Dear me, what has that got to do with the budget?

    Re: The Budget

    Universal Credit has seen an uplift (and extension) but anyone still on old system benefits have missed out throughout this year. A way of pushing people to make the change before they need to despite Universal Credit being financially a worse benefit for disabled people/people with ill health.

    A government looking to go green government has frozen fuel tax much to delight of Sun who campaigned for both greater focus on climate and protection for motorists.

    Corporation Tax increases and green infrastructure bank from Labour 2019 manifesto - not too surprising.

    I was replying to a post by Tuerto that was in response to something Mozzer said - there’s no point saying anything about the budget until the politically neutral Institute of Fiscal Studies have had their say on it because all you’ll hear today is party politicking.

    I agree with your last statement 100%. From what I've heard it hasn't hurt me much in the short term but it has done nothing to help me either.
