It's only 10p for crying out loud

What's the big deal about the 10p tax?

Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE is talking about it. Blogs, journos, just yesterday I was supposed to be addressing the Parliamentary Labour Party on Monday only to be nudged aside by Dear Gordon so he could tell everyone about why he wasn't backing down.

I don't understand what the big deal is, after all it's only 10p.

People who don't mind spending hundreds of pounds on handbags, suddenly complain about having 10p taken out of their pay packets.

It really makes you wonder about people's priorities.

I mean here's a rather nasty post speculating on why Labour did it.
Honestly, the cynicism of it all is unbelievable

Only a Tory would complain about us doing whatever it takes to reduce child poverty.
