VED up on diesels, affecting car owners only, more money for maths teaching of a levels.

OhYouBadBadKitten Wed 22-Nov-17 13:04:37

t levels to be introduced (like a levels, but not)

The growth projections are bloody miserable.

OhYouBadBadKitten Wed 22-Nov-17 13:10:00

they are. This austerity model is not working. Doing it harder won’t suddenly fix it.

OhYouBadBadKitten Wed 22-Nov-17 13:11:57

personal allowance and higher rate threshold both up.

OhYouBadBadKitten Wed 22-Nov-17 13:12:23

freezing short haul airline rates doesn’t seem to tally with the air quality worries.

OhYouBadBadKitten Wed 22-Nov-17 13:15:03

tobacco inflation +2%

10 billion over course of parliament for nhs

rail card for 26-30 year olds (ignoring the glaring transport issue for those who do apprenticeships age 16 or go on to sixth form)

Is it the usual budget of protect the 'poor' pensioners, lobby smokers, drinkers and anyone who gets off their arse and works hard despite minimum wage?

If not may be interested.

Is the VED increase on diesel cars for all cars. My tax is due next month and is normally £35?

OhYouBadBadKitten Wed 22-Nov-17 13:21:55

drinkers are ok, unless they are on high alcohol cider, smokers not, pensioners, not heard anything, a few bones thrown out to some of our poorest.

I doubt that bus pass for JSA people will ever be bought back in.

OhYouBadBadKitten Wed 22-Nov-17 13:22:30

Viva he said most. From sometime in 2018

OhYouBadBadKitten Wed 22-Nov-17 13:23:55

I think you are right Itsgonna, the pensioners pass is helping to kill off bus services in many areas.

VladmirsPoutine Wed 22-Nov-17 13:25:55

In light of Brexit this budget talk isn't really inspiring hope.

VladmirsPoutine Wed 22-Nov-17 13:27:03

Viva You'll most likely get away this time. But my understanding is that it will take full force next year.

OhYouBadBadKitten Wed 22-Nov-17 13:27:43

Grenfell tower, going to provide C&W with more funding to help with the aftermath. If councils can’t afford to do essential fire safety work they need to turn to government,

Empty properties - councils can charge 100% council tax premium on them.

rough sleeping - homelessness task force and some pilot schemes.

OhYouBadBadKitten Wed 22-Nov-17 13:28:03

It’s not Vladimir’s.

OhYouBadBadKitten Wed 22-Nov-17 13:28:16

stupid ipad!

Itsgonnabeacoldone Wed 22-Nov-17 13:30:23

Oh I got totally flamed on mn for saying that pensioners were killing the bus services! The system is so awful it makes me angry, it costs people £15 to get two buses to sign on here and is about a pound a mile to get into the next town. I'd much rather use the bus, but it's just so much more expensive than the car even for just one person and it's empty most of the time.

Itsgonnabeacoldone Wed 22-Nov-17 13:31:06

I'd rather a 300%-500% charge of council tax on empty and second property

Bunch of waffle as usual.
