Blog: Tax cuts for the rich have cost the country dear
When it comes to austerity, the Conservatives have often argued that “there is no alternative”. When he was Chancellor, George Osborne inflicted painful spending cuts on our country, our communities and our public services. Now, of course, George Osborne has sought to reinvent himself as a small ‘l’ liberal and a newspaper editor. Yet the choices he made – and they were choices – still have a lasting impact. The prime advocate of the “no alternative” doctrine may have left Parliament, but the effect of his cuts will be felt for generations. Yet the brutal approach to public s...

A growing surplus on the government’s share of business rates – which is set to increase by £1.8bn in 2018/19 – is being diverted into central coffers, when it would be better spent supporting local council services.
