Katie Hopkins predicted a Conservative victory and she was proved right.
Katie Hopkins has backbone and guts – the majority of people adore her, and the rest are simply jealous of her.
The true example of womanhood – Katie Hopkins
The British people want a Conservative Government and they want it to stay for good
They want the recovery to continue without hindrance from the looney tune left wing politically correct crackpots who ruined the economy in the first place under New Labour
Britain is better Conservative
Here are the benefits and bonuses of what is to come.
1. You could pass on your home to loved ones without worrying about inheritance tax
The Conservatives promised a new £175,000 per person transferable allowance for married couples and civil partners when their main residence is passed down to children on death.
This would mean that – combined with the existing £325,000 nil-rate band each person has on death, parents would be able to pass on property worth up to £1 million free of inheritance tax.
2. Your take-home pay will go up !
Your yearly tax-free personal allowance would rise from £10,600 to £12,500 under a Conservative government.
If you’re a higher rate taxpayer, you could also see more money in your pay packet thanks to a pledge to raise the 40 per cent threshold from its current level of £42,386 a year to £50,000.
The Conservative party has pledged vehemently that you would not see income tax rise, nor National Insurance contributions, nor VAT.
Lower-paid workers would also be much better off as the party has also vowed to raise the minimum wage to around £8 an hour in the next five years.
3. You could get cash to buy a house
The flagship Conservative policy is that tenants of housing association properties would be able to buy their home at a big discount under a new ‘Right to Buy’ scheme extension.
Aspiring homeowners under a Conservative government would have access to a Help to Buy Isa, which would top up £50 for every £200 saved towards a deposit, up to a maximum top-up of £3,000. This was announced in the March Budget.
Buyers who can get together a five per cent deposit could apply for a five-year, interest-free government loan equivalent to 20 per cent of a new-build property’s value under the existing Help to Buy Scheme.
This was due to be pulled next year, but would now be extended until 2020.
Alternatively a Help to Buy mortgage guarantee allows potential buyers a better chance of a mortgage to buy a home with a five per cent deposit, with the government protecting lenders if the borrower defaults.
This would now remain until 2017.
4. Pension freedom will remain, state pension will rise, but young and wealthy savers get hit
Pension freedom rules were ushered in on 6 April to give people much more flexible access to their retirement pots and they can now invest or spend it as they wish after the age of 55.
There had been concerns that a Labour government would undo some of these changes, it was likely all would of been swept aside. Now they should remain and be allowed to become entrenched.
Conservatives to keep the triple lock formula, which will see the state pension continue to rise by whichever is highest out of consumer price inflation, average earnings or 2.5 per cent.
Pensioners under a Conservative government would keep winter fuel payments for older people, and free bus passes and TV licences for all pensioners, regardless of how well off they are.
Pension savers could be better off all round.
5. Benefits scroungers finally dealt with
Why should you work to subsidise those who do not want to work or are Benefits tourists.
The Tories aim to cut £12billion from the welfare budget by 2017-18. However, few details on where cuts will be made have been revealed.
It has, however, pledged to cap benefits at £23,000, down from £26,000 a year, and to freeze benefits.
One change will be the removal of Jobseeker’s Allowance for 18-21 year-olds, to be replaced with a Youth Allowance available for six months after which young people will have to take an apprenticeship, traineeship or daily community work for their benefits. People aged 18-21 on Job Seeker’s Allowance will no longer have an automatic entitlement to Housing Benefit.
6. You could receive more free childcare
The Conservatives have pledged to double to amount of free weekly childcare for working parents with children aged three or four to 30 hours – worth around £5,000 a year.
7. The cost of rail fares could be frozen
The Conservatives have pledged to freeze commuter rail fares for five years. David Cameron said the price freeze would save commuters an average of £400 by 2020.
Annual rises in so-called regulated fares will be capped at the rate of inflation for the whole of the next Parliament, meaning costs will be frozen in real terms.
These include commuter tickets for major cities, weekly, monthly and annual season tickets, day singles and returns and long-distance off-peak return tickets.
Regulated fares were set aside after privatisation for the Government to oversee, and are those most often used by commuters who have to travel at certain times.
Unregulated fares are set by train operating companies at commercial rates, and include first-class, advance-purchase and long-distance anytime fares.
About half of rail fare revenue comes from regulated fares, the other half from unregulated fares.
– Married couples will keep the right to transfer £1,060 of their tax-free income to their husband or wife – a measure which was introduced just last month, but was set to be scrapped under a Labour government.
The tax break applies to civil partnerships as well, and the transferable amount will always rise at least in line with the Personal Allowance.
…And the changes you will not see
Tuition fees will remain at £9,000 and future rises have not been ruled out by the Conservatives. Ed Miliband had pledged a Labour government would have cut fees to £6,000.
Zero hours contracts will quite rightly not be banned – a measure also proposed by Labour by the way.
Energy bills will not be frozen for the next two years, a plan also put forward by Labour.
The so-called ‘bedroom tax’ will not be abolished – a system whereby tenants on housing benefit have payments cut by 14 per cent if they have an unused bedroom, and quite rightly so, why should they have extra rooms paid for by the Taxpayer.
People living in expensive properties will not face a mansion tax. Labour had planned a contentious tax that was expected to cost those with homes worth £2 million to £3 million at least £3,000 a year.
Many more benefits to come, far too many to go into here, but one thing is for sure – we are on the up and up and things can only get better and better from now on.
Labour must never be given the chance to wreck Britain ever again.
