Tories, Sinn Fein and the DUP serve business not working people

tax credits

Business benefits at the expense of ordinary people

The Workers Party has warned against celebrating the withdrawal of plans to cut family tax credits, pointing out that both the Tories at Westminster and the Sinn Fein / DUP coalition at Stormont are committed to supporting the rich and big business at the expense of ordinary people.

The Tories are ideologically committed to benefiting the well off by penalising  working people and people in receipt of benefits. Shifting the focus from family tax credits only means that those cuts will surface somewhere else.

At Stormont  Sinn Fein and the DUP  have led the charge to reduce Corporation Tax for multi national firms with out the guarantee of one single new job while at the same time thousands of local people remain caught in the poverty trap.
