Sunak won’t tackle the cost of living crisis. A basic income can.

The government is cutting benefits. Again.

Sunak announced a promise to cut income tax in 2024. Coming from the party that has overseen the largest tax rises in decades (and lowest corporation tax rates), it’s hard to swallow. A cut in two years also fails to make a dent in the financial hardship people are experiencing now. Moreover, more than 20% of households don’t pay income tax. That’s 42% of adults in the UK that this policy doesn’t help in the future, never mind now when folks are turning down potatoes at a food bank because they can’t pay for the energy to cook them.
