I’m writing to praise many of the Conservative MPs who stood up against cuts to tax credits, but also to convey my disappointment that my local MP Henry Smith did not vote against them.
I ask that he changes his stance and makes a stand against these terrible cuts that will make hard working families pay for the mistakes of the very wealthy and the bankers who created the financial crisis. These cuts should be paid for by closing tax loopholes for the corporations and very wealthy who are, instead being granted tax breaks whilst we all pay for their careless mistakes.
