This is conclusive, from the Independent:

The Conservatives have accused Labour of planning to raise income tax on millions of low- to middle-income earners in order to fund care for the elderly.

Is the Conservatives’ claim true?

No – it’s completely false. Labour has repeatedly promised not to raise income tax on anyone earning less than £80,000, which includes everyone in the 20p tax band that the Tories claim Mr Corbyn and Mr McDonnell want to raise.

Of course, all parties have at times broken their manifesto pledges. There is nothing, though, to suggest that Labour currently has any intention of increasing income tax on low or middle-income earners to pay for social care – or, for that matter, for anything else.

Vote Labour on June 8 – for honest politics.
