...Let's just get this straight ... I earn over £80k, that's right, me. I'm one of the 5%ers. I am more than happy to pay more tax for a Labour Government to help the workers, the pensioners and the poor. I don't like seeing mothers struggling at the Co-op and ASDA checkouts trying to pinch the pennies. I don't like seeing former steel and chemical workers from Teesside on the dole or threatened with redundancy. I don't like my friends, my daughters, my cousins and their kids on less than a proper living wage or unemployed. I don't like my family being asked at the school gate to fund education, i don't like school hours being cut forcing my family and friends to fund childcare whilst they try to go to work. I don't like my parents, aunties and uncles having their heating payments taken off them. I don't like seeing them worried about keeping their home, scraping by to pay the mortgage or flying all over the World away from their families to find a decent job with decent protections. I don't like working class kids being put off going to University cos of the debts they will incur. #votelabour oh, yeah, I didn't like my cousins and their partners being sent to War in Afghanistan, Iraq and the like by trigger happy politicians. Rant over.
I started off as an NHS student nurse, my training paid fro by the state. The Trade Union Movement and the State paid for me to go to UNI as mature student and I became a Barrister. I want the same for every person in the UK. I was given a leg up and I pay back, simples. Its the Labour Way. ANDREW SCOTT

There is an urgent need for more trainee barristers and fortunately they are on their way across the Mediterranean as we speak.

I really hope that a real barrister would have better grammar and not use a naff term like "Simples".

Well I'm a Project Manager earning not far off this and I couldn't agree more, I'm fed up of successive government screwing over the population whilst giving away billions a year in foreign aid (I'm sure India were very happy we paid for their new Battleships), spending billions on Trident and all the other cash sinks.
HS2 is a fine example, can anyone who lives or works on the Brighton line imagine spending 60 billion on new lines all the time the current lines are so bad?

You got to be a sad sack to believe some of the crap Labour supporters put on here. Look back to the late 70s to see the mess we where in.

And then we had Thatcher, what a holiday that was.

@Jess, you call Labour b*****. How about the Tories this past few days. Is there a care tax. Yes, NO! Maybe, No. Not sure. We'll tell you after the election. Hahahahahahahaha

When Labour rule hopefully there will be equaity and everybody will be paid the same wage. Let's see how these smug barristers feel having to live on £10 per hour like everybody else.
