The announcement by CCHQ , HM Treasury amongst other govt departments that for the first time ever a leaflet was going with Tax Summaries for income tax payers seemed rather suspicious when :
Certain universal taxes duties and charges creating govt income from the UK population were not included .
It is based around Income Tax.
The summary of spending is only to be given to income tax payers receiving summaries.
When welfare is prevalent message "where do your taxes go - ooh look - welfare"
This reinforces previous rhetoric of "Looking after people costs too much money"
There are many media examples of this shameful rhetoric.
Theres a backflow from Welfare payments through VAT and other charges, which would if being fair, significantly reduce effect of welfare on income tax payers when considering net spending impact .
Its highly selective.
Oh MP expenses and Salaries come from tax revenue? Why is no percentage given for that? Is that because theres a HUGE payrise due?
The slant to this leaflet disturbs me as continuance of negative rhetoric, and also if:
Theres approximately 60 million in this country and only 24 million leaflets... does that make it seem like party propoganda based on distorted message and delivered by a nudge psychology method?
AND if it is Party Messaging shouldnt CCHQ pay for it and not as assumed so far the HMRC/ Treasury ?
These are questions.
Heres one glaring anamoly:
Ah but there is an election coming...
