Here are the facts.
He will give a £1.2bn inheritance tax cut to the richest 2 per cent in Britain – with most going to the 3,000 wealthiest estates (including his wife's).
Wrong. In fact the cut means that ONLY millionaires will pay inheritance tax.
Then he promises to end the 50p top rate of tax, giving another £2.4bn to the richest 1 per cent.
No, he has never promised to do this. He said it would be an aspiration at some point in the future.
Then he has pledged to cut taxes on the pensions of the richest, handing another £3.2bn to the same 1 per cent.
Has he? This is a new one on me. Source please.
Then his marriage tax relief policies will give 13 times more to the rich than the poor.
No they won't. The tax relief is targeted at only those with an income of less than £44k. Are people on £44k rich?
To pay for this, he will slash programmes for the middle and the skint, like the Child Trust Fund, SureStart and state schools.
Wrong. The CTF will indeed be abolished, but SureStart will not.
And to think, Hari has won awards and gets paid for his columns. Some people have all the luck.
