Re: General Election Is On

Best news so far of the GE: https://www.bbc.com/news/election-2019-50492998 Boris Johnson Pledges to cut National Insurance Tax for anyone earning £12,500 or under. Great boost for the lowest paid workers in society. Brilliant. Damo is going to be really ****** off about how much this will cost.
