David Cameron today announced that people earning the minimum wage and working thirty hours a week will no longer have to pay tax.*
That means those people will have a whopping extra 26p to spend each week.
So, essentially, this is David Cameron saying to the working poor, “Here, have a packet of Space Raiders on us, you’ve earned it.”
* in 2018, if they’ve eliminated the deficit by then…it’s currently over £100 billion and rising.

I miss you too ugh <3<3<3 I am the worst person in the world at successfully keeping in touch rn. I love you though and I would really like to see you.
I was maid of honour at a friend’s wedding recently and I’ve just looked through all the photos and - well, if I can’t be narcissistic about photographs of myself that I liked on tumblr then where can I be?

Hehe equality right?
Do you not understand the purpose of this, or why the prices are what they are? Does this need to be explained to you?
Oh yea right, the famous “wage gap” between men and women that has been debunked tons of times! That sure is the right argument to fight sexism with!
Not debunked, misrepresented, as it is a complicated issue. It’s honestly more accurate to call it a PAY gap than a WAGE gap, since there are a myriad of factors at play here. Women DO, on average, make less money than men. That is indisputable, and the margins widen when you include factors of race, disability, and sexuality.
IF you would like some more in depth reading:
So yes, the bake sale above is a pretty simplistic little stunt about a complicated economic and social issue. But the fact that it pisses people off sort of makes its point for it.
Excellent primary sources for those concerned about sex based oppression/ how men continually benefit from female subjugation also I would really like one of those Vegan cupcakes

Oh god it has been too many years since I last saw this film.
i find it interesting that when it comes to liking girls I’m just like GIRLS ALL GIRLS YES PERFECT GIRLS but with boys i’m like you must fit criteria 1-9 but 9 is optional only if you completely fill criteria 10-13 with…
I have bronchitis. Thanks to the ACA, I was able to get medicine for $0. #ThanksObama
that came from taxes I paid.
Well, let my know how much I owe you and I’ll drop a few pennies in the mail. War comes from taxes you paid, and I personally dislike the amount I pay going for that… Maybe we should check “yes” or “no” on our 1040 forms this year for allocation of tax dollars.
I’m sorry you think I’m lying, but I’m not. I qualified for the Medicaid expansion under the ACA, which is partially funded through taxpayer revenue. I don’t think the IRS mailed you a letter saying, “Nah nah nah nah naaaaaaah! This year’s tax dollars went to pay for medicine for poor people mwahahaha!” Who knows? Maybe YOUR portion of tax dollars went to a Hellfire missile that took out a village in Afghanistan. Ooh, how exciting for you!
Comfort yourself with that thought as I use my inhaler, which I would not have been able to afford without the ACA.
what the fuck is wrong with Americans who aren’t on board with free healthcare. I’m Canadian and I don’t care that I pay extra taxes so a little boy in Alberta can have open heart surgery, or an elderly man in Nova Scotia can get the heart medication he desperately needs. It’s called taking care of your people. I’m glad I pay so that people can have a good quality of life. It’s called being a decent fucking human being.
I’m British, and we’re mostly just baffled that it seems to be such a big deal over there. Welcome to the civilised world, folks.
At 18, a person is legally an adult.
But we don’t call them adults. We call them “Millenials.” To be called an adult, you have to be 30 or over.
So we have all the rights and responsibilities of adults, but we’re not…
