In light of the announcement to seek to call a General Election, is this the opportunity to attempt to kill MTD?
A concerted campaign of e mails from accountants representing the SME sector , to their clients, urging them to vote against the Conservatives if they do not scrap their proposals, could be a fairly powerful weapon.
This election is going to be very interesting, Labour in a shambles, UKIP lost purpose, Liberals with opportunities-but can they seize them (no real signs yet they can) and the SNP set to rampage amongst the Scottish Electorate.
Concerted efforts by particular lobbies carrying significant numbers of voters could well be listened to by the government, whilst on a national poll I would expect the Conservatives to walk it ,given state of Labour first past post gives rise to interesting tactical voting; in this election their are more disgruntled voters than normal, should accountants tap into issue politics to help kill MTD?
p.s. Got a response from SNP re MTD but ,as was likely, not convinced they feel it is important to them. Edinburgh Conservative Association still to respond, I suggested to them I might withold my vote re the local elections in May if no reasonable response ,think may extend it to the General Election.
p.p.s. Talked politics with my neighbour in Sweden at Easter, apparently Theresa is nicknamed "Maybe" in Swedish politics.
