Historically labour has represented the working classes. Support the unions etc. Tax the wealthy. I meant it in that context. What the papers would have us think of as a labour supporter. One of those unfair generalisations. 70k before tax isn't nearly high enough to be talking rich. We're in the small business bracket rottiepointerhouse mentioned. We live in a small terrace, don't have a pension, haven't had a holiday in over 10 years and have a secondhand car. However, we don't have debts other than the mortgage and if our washing machine breaks we can replace it. Took us a while to get to that stage. I'd say we're comfortable, not rich. After comfortable, you've got the well off before you get as high as rich lol. There's no sending money offshore and putting it into investments, or setting up in a tax haven to avoid taxes for us.
