I can't quite se why he wants a raise more revenue budget at the moment, he has stated that is a 'pre brexit budget to allow for contingencies '. Surely without having to pay the billions into the bottomless pit known as the EU anymore, we will shortly have billions to spare 😡

Am I alone in thinking there has been another kick in the teeth to savers and the elderly? Those who have saved into shares or bought them as part of their lump sum for additional income are now being hit. What was set up to sort out a perceived tax dodge is now going to really hurt savers and the more prudent elderly. No doubt seen as a good thing by our Westminster representative.
