The rich are paying more than ever before, actually. If you overdo it, they will either change their behaviour to counteract the tax increase or they will move out of the country, as Mick Jagger did in the 1970s.

There is no point in taxing the rich to such an extent that you drive them away. That will just reduce our income, and who do you think would have to make up the deficiency? The poor, of course, because they have nowhere to run.

Liberal Democrats - they negotiated this with the Tories when they were in coalition.

I'm not sure how many U-turns Corbyn has made, probably many. But Theresa May has loads to her name. She's no Thatcher in that respect.
Examples include: foreign worker lists, national insurance rise for self-employed, workers on company boards, a British bill of rights, Hinckley Point, no early election, no energy cap. Strong and stable? Not in a conventional sense. She needs to test her policies more with the Party rather than relying on Timothy and Fiona to tell her what will work.

Looking at this election campaign so far without any bias Andrew l think its fair to say that the Conservatives election campaign has been nothing short of extremely poor.

It's the scale of the u turning that's worrying, generally I don't have a problem with politicians flip flopping a bit as it shows they aren't pig headed and stubborn enough to belive they're right and everyone else is wrong but Mrs May u turns on the big stuff and to do it so often is unforgivable, strong and stable leadership, there's a laugh, we've got troops on the streets! you're right about the lib Dems to iirc

Great article, thanks for sharing. I agree with Brenda from Bristol!

Agreed. If something's wrong it's arrogant to pursue it to the point of failure. What's concerning here is indeed the scale. It suggests there's no underlying philosophy or that the policies aren't thought through and consulted on sufficiently before being launched.Or both.
I guess the U-turns give her and Trump a mutual interest.
