Theresa May says a Conservative government will not raise VAT if she wins the general election.
But the PM declined to back a 2015 Tory pledge that also ruled out rises in income tax and National Insurance.
Our "beloved" PM has been on the political shows this morning and although she has guaranteed not to raise VAT she is saying to wait for the manifesto to come out regarding the triple lock. Pretty obvious which way that will go. She went on to say she wants to help the lower paid wage earners and ensure that she looks at the big picture of the overall tax burden and tax take, rather than just making minor tweaks here and there. (Gordon Brown was the king of making minor tweaks) Also a "few" mentions of "strong" and "stable" leadership....
They called the election, it's about time the Conservative Party produced their manifesto!
