The British Rebirth Of Tax and Spend

Jeremy Corbyn - in touch with the people (mirror photo)
A British Social Attitudes survey reports that nearly half of voting Britons today think that public spending should be increased by raising taxes  The BBC lists the main survey findings (see link below): 
  • 48% say they want higher taxes to pay for more spending on health, education and social benefits; 44% say they want it to stay the same and 4% would like to see taxes cut 
  • It is the first time since the financial crash of 2007-8 that more people want more tax and spending than want it to stay the same 
The survey follows only weeks after left-wing Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn won a vote share of over 40% in the 2017 general election.  An election that will surely be remembered as one of the worst political misjudgements by the Conservative Party in living memory and just before they intend to use their "expertise" in the BREXIT negotiations - BREXIT has been described as the most important issue for half a century.
