The Conservative Party have opened a new front of attack by criticising Labour’s taxation plans in a new poster.
The Conservatives have plucked arrived at a figure of £3,028 (seemingly from nowhere) for how much extra tax a working family would pay under a Labour government.
This isn’t one of the Tory’s better posters. It’s fairly direct and doesn’t have much reward for the viewer.
But the poster helped shape the election narrative this week and got the media talking about Labour’s tax plans, so it has to be seen as a mild success.
