Jeremy Hunt confirms that he has ensured we don’t have enough to live on

Jeremy Hunt: this could have been taken the moment he realised he had spoken before thinking.

Tory Chancellor Jeremy Hunt reckons £100,000 a year is not a “huge salary” – but the average wage in the UK is just £35,000.

He reckons that the cost of a mortgage and child care would ensure that there was little or no excess cash to put in the bank or spend on luxuries.

And some of us have drawn the obvious conclusion:

This fits in with what This Site published earlier in response to Gary Stevenson’s revelation that the price of assets – including housing – is not included in reports on the rate of inflation and we are therefore constantly misled about the cost of living and the amount of money we need to be paid in order to meet that cost.

What really gets This Writer’s goat is that Hunt will happily say £100k is not a lot but then insist that those of us who don’t receive anything like as much… don’t deserve it.

And Rachel Reeves, over in Keir Starmer’s Substitute Tory Party – I mean, Labour, is no better.

Calls for a general election are right on the button.

We need an entirely new wave of representatives in Westminster – people who are ready and willing to impose the high taxes on the rich that we need to get our assets back into public hands and our services back into workable condition; and who are ready to do what is necessary to restore our pay, and our standard of living.

    And, people on incomes which are far below the minimum living wage, still have to pay tax on anything over £12,570, even though they don’t have enough to live on!!
