Most people agree with Income Tax increases for high earners
From The Canary: A poll conducted by ComRes for The Daily Mirror surveyed 1,021 adults online on 11 May. It asked them about their opinions on Labour’s manifesto policies; how far left and right certain political figures and parties were; and broader thoughts on both Labour and the Conservatives.

Respondents also support:
- Renationalisation of railways (52% agree, 22% disagree)
- Banning zero hours contracts (71% – 16%)
- Scrapping student tuition fees (46% – 37%)
- Building 100,000 council houses per year (54% – 24%)
- Keeping the pension age at 66 (74% – 15%)
- Renationalising Royal Mail (50% – 25%)
- Keeping the foxhunting ban (78% – 12%)
- Giving Parliament a veto on the final Brexit deal (36% – 35%)
- Creating a ‘national education service’ like the NHS (43% – 20%)
Looking deeper into the research, there are more discrepancies with people’s views. For example, 44% of people would rather vote for a party that wants social justice and stronger workers’ rights, as opposed to 38% for an economically “strong and stable” one. Which is, essentially, #Labour vs #Conservative.
