So Nick Clegg cuts tax for the highest earners in the country and then says that the wealthy should pay more tax – LINK
Here are some Twitter reactions to Clegg’s announcement.
Hypocrisy of Clegg is stunning! To call for tax on super-rich having supported reducing top rate of income tax takes some believing.—

Clegg - the rich should pay more tax/the rich should pay less tax (delete where applicable depending upon which week it is).—

Nick Clegg has a cheek. Today he calls for millionaires to pay more tax. 6 months ago he voted to give tax cuts to millionaires.—

How much of their £40k tax break does Nick Clegg want millionaires to give back?—
