Today is the day that New Labour abolish the 10p starting rate of tax.  This hits the lowest paid workers hardest of all and is a disgrace.  A shop assistant that may earn £8,000 a year will now pay £212 a year more.  Where as people on over twice that amount will only £6 a year more in tax, like a security guard on £18,000.  How can this be right?
