Backwoodsman BS: Brexit & other UK political topics (2406* d) RE: BS: Brexit & other UK political topics 09 Sep 21

It may have been commented on earlier in the thread, if so I apologise for repeating, but this is not a ‘1.25% increase’ as touted by the Tories, it’s a 10% increase - the current basic NIC Rate being 12.5%, and 1.25% is 10% of that basic rate.

In fact, the increase amounts to 1.25 percentage-points - not the same thing as ‘percent’, which term the Johnson Gang prefer because it sounds a smaller number.

More weasel words from Tory weasels, exactly as anyone capable of original thought would expect of them. Brings to mind those other carefully thought out weasel words on the side of a certain red bus, dunnit?
