What the election means for your money: How party plans for tax, spending and the economy’s future could affect you
It’s been dubbed the Brexit election but the general election on 12 December 2019 is as much about tax, spending and competing visions for Britain’s economic future as anything else.
The main parties have all now released their manifestos and continue to outline their plans for the UK: ranging from Labour’s vision of a socialist future, to the Liberal Democrats cornerstone policy of revoking Brexit and the Conservatives mantra of Get Brexit Done and then reverse their own austerity plans.
Challenging the three main national parties for your vote – depending on where you live – are the Greens, Brexit Party, SNP, DUP, Plaid Cymru, independents and more.
There will be many things that make Britons decide on how to cast their vote, but a key element for many will be plans for tax, spending and the national finances – and how they will affect them and others.
