From 1979 to 1988 the high rate under Margaret Thacher was 60%.

If Mrs May is to end austerity as she promises, then she needs more income from direct taxation, so Osborne's 2013 reductions will have to bereversed.

Thatcher was then, this is now....

And as of now I still dont know anybody who has actually been able to tell me of any effect by this so called "austerity" on their finances or lifestyle...
When did you last visit a public librar.... - stupid question.

350 libraries have closed since 2010.
Gromit

In this digital age, how many use libraries, unless it is those who do not possess a computer, tablet or smart phone etc?
I would have thought people who like to read books but cannot afford to buy them every time.
Why does it not surprise me that AOG does not use a library?
Perhaps those in their eighties such as ANOTHEOLDGIT but who have not been able to understand the Internet or digital devices?
AOG...many thousands of people use Libraries, all over Britain. Have a look in your local one, if its still open. See the parties of schoolkids who visit for instance, or the OAPs that consider Libraries to be a life line.
Yeah Labour and tax have always been like slugs and salt, they really don't understand it do they.
"From 1979 to 1988 the high rate under Margaret Thacher was 60%. " - yes inherited from the hyper tax of the Labour party, remember 97%? Who whined the most when she cut it completely? Kinnochio wasn't it?
Tora,
True they inherited it in 1979, but they had 9 budgets in which to change it, and it remained at 60% until 1988.
The high rate tax is applied to just 1% of tax payers.
Question Author
Absolute tosh ...librarys were closing long before "austerity"...laughable...the usual distortion

youll be blaming everything that closed on "austerity", and even if libraries were closed on the back of austerity as the excuse, its hardly a priority service...
"The high rate tax is applied to just 1% of tax payers." - yeah but most pay the next lowest of 40%.
"True they inherited it in 1979, but they had 9 budgets in which to change it, and it remained at 60% until 1988. " - I don't know why that was, it is well known that these high rates collect very little.

And as of now I still dont know anybody who has actually been able to tell me of any effect by this so called "austerity" on their finances or lifestyle..

You don't get out enough....
Hotblack Desiato had the right idea......
I use my library, AOG.....and when I was working I took children to our local library......if we were studying Monet, for instance, the children would have their paintings displayed in the library with books about artists on display too.....

Libraries have so much to offer........well, for those who are miffed at so many closing I suppose.
lol @ people still moaning about Thatcher did this and Thatcher did the other....thinking it has relevance about today.
sorry but hahahahahaha. I wonder what he took before going on air?
oh and Mushroom, there’s a name from the past.
