  • Cafes, shops and start-ups are all looking at this winter with dread, yet all Boris Johnson can muster up is a massive new tax bill. The Conservatives must be living on another planet if they think the answer to business owners' problems is to put up their taxes.
  • This country was promised tax cuts by the Conservatives, but yet again their promises have been proven not to be worth the paper they are written on.
  • People and businesses need help now. We want to give our dedicated local business owners and entrepreneurs a helping hand, and to truly unleash Britain's potential.
  • The proposed tax cut would save small businesses an average of £5,000 a year by aiding them with staff costs. It would be achieved by quadrupling the Employment Allowance to £16,000 for a period of two years.
