The UKIP – under us thousands will lose their jobs and most will pay more tax (not satire)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

(not satire – it’s the UKIP!)

In an extraordinary interview with the business publication London Loves Business, the man in charge of UKIP’s economic policy – Godfrey Bloom – has admitted that if the party were to win the next election most people in the UK will pay more tax.

Official UKIP policy is to introduce a flat rate of income tax at 31% – although in the interview Bloom says he would prefer a flat rate of 25%.

However, most people in the UK pay the basic income tax rate of 20% – which would mean a massive tax increase of 5%-11% for the people on the lowest incomes under the UKIP proposals.

And obviously a flat rate of tax without the highest brackets would also mean a massive cut in tax for the richest people in the country.

In the interview, Bloom also rather bizarrely says that if the UKIP were put in charge of the UK economy, he ‘hopes’ thousands of people will lose their jobs.

Here’s the exact quote, from the horse’s mouth as it were:

They are public sector jobs, so they are taking money out of the economy and wealth creation. I hope hundreds, thousands of jobs will be lost.

Now I don’t pretend to be any kind of expert on electoral strategy but I would have thought that telling the electorate you ‘hope’ many of them will lose their jobs and pay much more tax if you win an election wouldn’t be much of a vote winner.

The UKIP, however, clearly seem to think otherwise.
