    Capital gains will still be taxed more lightly, as they are not subject to National Insurance:
    this is especially the case for those with income below the Higher Rate Threshold

    ...

    In addition to the lighter taxation of capital gains, owners of assets benefit from reduced rates
    of income tax on dividends from those assets: sometimes as low as 7.5%.
    Labour proposes to equalise the tax treatment of income from dividends with other income by
    charging marginal rates equal to those in our income tax policy as well as
    – as with capital gains
    tax – removing the separate allowance subject to a de minimis threshold as with capital gains tax.

    I wouldn't waste your time reading their manifesto.

    They will NEVER EVER get in with Corbyn & Co at the helm.

    Hopefully they've printed it on something that can double up as bog paper.

    They can't vote themselves more, contrary to fake news, as there is a separate body that determines MPs salary and pension.

    MPs can change tax - like I say, so long as you earn under the MPs salary you'll most likely be safe. I'd bet my bottom dollar that an 'excessive' salary just happens to be just over what they earn

    To become poorer you have to be poor first. You aren't and you know it.

    I'm not a supporter of minimal taxes due to the fact we can see various public services crashing, but Tory public relations is trying to convince us everything is going swell. On the other hand I don't want a left (they aren't 'far left') party in, a centre-left would be fine. Labour, LibDem and SNP coalition seems the wisest choice, so if that can be orchestrated then I suspect we won't see anything too major against contractors for a few years. With the Tories we already have severe IR35 ramifications and the scrapping of ER *anyway*, so I don't see much hassle given that inside IR35 roles, minus pension, will be within the PAYE rates for most for the advertised Labour income tax increases.

    "A Labour government will invest £100bn in Scotland over a 10-year period, Jeremy Corbyn has said."

    The UK already 'invests' 10 billion per year so I suspect what he really means is he is going to do nothing and claim credit for the status quo.
