VAT, Cynicism and the ToryDem Coalition

Left foot forward has a very good post on the cyniism behind the VAT rise.

It includes this graph ....

The Lib Dems made much of raising the tax threshold to £7000, taking some people out of paying income tax. But the VAT rise will hit the poorest hardest.
