Time for Change

Gordon Brown promised British jobs for British workers – yet every day people are losing their jobs and businesses are going bust. This recession is the worst in living memory, made worse by Gordon  Brown’s failure to use the good times to put something aside for the downturn. The Government’s response to the crisis has been to throw money – our money – at the problem. The Conservatives would do things differently:

  • We would freeze Council Tax for 2 years
  • Abolish Stamp Duty for most first time buyers
  • Get banks lending again through a National
  • Loans Guarantee Scheme
  • Abolish tax on savings for basic rate tax payers
  • Raise the tax threshold for pensioners
