A foolish tax hike


LEAVING the EU was meant to unlock Britain’s swashbuckl­ing entreprene­urial spirit, turbocharg­ing prosperity.

Instead, Chancellor Jeremy Hunt risks choking off our post-pandemic recovery by heaping more taxes on the economy.

Pressing ahead with a six percentage point rise in corporatio­n tax on April 1 would hammer businesses, deter inward investment, jeopardise jobs and undermine competitiv­eness. Abandon the hike, Chancellor – don’t be an April Fool.
