LETTER: Why are we helping the rich get richer?

A reader discusses the latest budget.

The Budget proves that the Conservatives favour the wealthy.

The new tax regime means that I, as an OAP, will be a mere 14 pounds a year better off whereas a fat cat earning 100,000 Pounds per year will be even richer by 68 Pounds. Shouldn't that money go to the NHS instead without detriment to the affluent life-style of the well off?

In relative terms, the rich get richer and the poor get poorer.
