    George Osborne: 'People paying 40p rate feel they are success'



    " George Osborne has been criticised by Tory MPs after allegedly saying that people who pay the 40p rate feel they are "successful" and have "joined the aspirational classes".

    Mr Osborne reportedly told MPs in his Downing Street offices that there were "advantages" in more people being dragged into the higher rate of tax.

    Tory MPs who were present at the meeting described his comments as "jaw-dropping" and responded to the comments with a "stunned silence".

    Details of the meeting emerged as the Chancellor prepares to rule out raising the threshold for the 40p rate in the Budget on Wednesday.

    Speaking on BBC One's The Andrew Marr show, Mr Osborne said that his key priority was increasing the tax-free personal allowance. "



    What a quality fkwit!!!

    FFS, the reason more people get dragged into 40% bracket is not because they started earning more, but because he drops the threshold for the tax, FFS!

    He is a knob. They are all knobs. We live in a land of knobby knobbers. I am going to start a party and call it the knob party. I will get a majority because everyone votes for knobs.

    Vote Knob for Prime Knobber. You know it makes Knobbing good sense.

    I'll feel successful if Liverpool win the prem this year. I placed my original bet in September and doubled up just after christmas at 14-1. I do need City to slip up though I reckon with the three way pressure on they might crack.

    I will feel successful when frying sausages on a mess tin, in company of my family who I kept safe through the international light show.

    He really is a cretin if he believes that

    Also commentators are cretins for going on about people paying 40%, they don't the direct income tax rate for them is 52% as even the government admit NI is income tax by another name
