She said that, he said this... about £60,000 a year by @mammapolitico and @adadcalledspen
What’s your family income? Do you get tax credits or childcare payments? Is £60,000 a year a large household income? If ever there is a scenario that raises the temperature of political debate, this is it. Rachel Reeves Shadow Chief Secretary to the Treasury stated this week that those earning £60,000 a year “do not feel particularly rich”. She herself earns an MP’s salary of £66,000 a year. Labour’s new vote winning policy is to pledge to not raises taxes for those earning £60,000.
So what do I think about a household income of £60,000? Let me start by stating that despite my 5 years of University education and a teaching career of some years I have never come close to earning that amount of money.
