    Dividend Allowance 9th Jun 17 at 12:22 PM
    Will the cut still go ahead? I think it is on hold now so we are still on £5000 for next tax year at the moment. If the government is propped up by the DUP, will they risk Nick Clegg unpopularity by enabling and being blamed for effective tax rises (they still insist on the pension triple lock and winter payments for Northern Island apparently)?

    It is not a coalition. So, that won't happen.

    It may not be an official coalition, but they will still be seen as the ones allowing any unpopular tax rises or allowance reductions to go through.

    That presupposes that it is seen as an "unpopular tax rise". I fear that the wider public, beyond the investing community, might see it otherwise.

  • RT @ARJMOR: @MartinSLewis It may well be kind of random, but the algorithm used has a bias to the unpopular seats.
