Who would you prefer to slash your taxes - Reform UK or the Workers Party?

Who would you prefer to slash your taxes – Reform UK or the Workers Party?

The Workers Party launched its election manifesto on Wednesday (June 19) with a pledge to stop people earning up to £21,200 a year from paying taxes. It raises a question: who would you prefer to slash your taxes – Reform UK or the Workers Party?

Reform has already made an announcement that it would do the same thing – more or less, raising the Income Tax threshold to £20,000.

But This Site has already suggested that the right-wing party’s gesture may be seen as offering a few crumbs to the plebs in order to silence protest about the huge sums of money that are being taken by the top one per cent of earners – Reform’s natural constituency.

I have also pointed out that Reform’s other main pledges will be disastrous if they are pushed through: attacking immigration means vital services will be crippled; scrapping energy levies and the commitment to reach net zero carbon emissions will turn the current climate emergency into a catastrophe; and attempts to cut out waste in the NHS will merely ruin that service and make it ripe for privatisation under false pretences.

So what else is the Workers Party offering, then?

The BBC reports that it will expand council housing with a million new homes built and tenants able to elect their landlords; nationalise certain utility companies (but not all of them); and give all workers the option of retiring at 60.

How would it pay for these measures? According to George Galloway [pictured, left], “hundreds of billions” could be saved by scrapping nuclear weapons. But won’t this make the UK even more of an American “vassal state”(as Mr Galloway described it) than it is now – reliant on that other country for protection from the threat of nuclear attack?

Among other plans, Reform would fund its own agenda by stopping the Bank of England paying interest to commercial banks on quantitative easing reserves, which would de-stabilise the financial system, stoke inflation and crash the economy.

Neither option is acceptable, really. But the Workers Party would only put us into a hypothetical bind – in certain circumstances, whereas Reform’s plans would be sure to create hardship for millions of people.

The other policies of the Workers Party are intended to increase prosperity, whereas Reform’s would cause disaster.

And Reform’s ideology is almost synonymous with fascism – as one might expect from a party whose political lineage can be traced back to Oswald Mosley’s British Fascist Party. Mosley and Nigel Farage [pictured, right] have a lot in common, too.

And other options are available in every constituency, of course.

    British nuclear weapons have got nothing to do with defence.

    They are about status. Tony Blair acknowledges this in his memoirs.
