Nomination goes in
I am the sort of person who believes in getting nominations in on the first possible date rather than the latest possible date.
Nominations opened at 10am today. I arranged for an appointment at 11am and my nomination was accepted at about 11.15am.
The party's campaign seems to be going quite well. Labour are criticising our proposals to increase the tax threshold to 10K.
Their argument is that it does not benefit everyone on a low income. However, I think it is important to make sure that people are better off if they work than if they don't work.
The current system makes life quite difficult for people on lower earned incomes who struggle to make ends meet. For them £700 a year is a lot of money.
It is also in society's interest for fewer people to be on the dole and to encourage people to be thrifty.
