Are these squeaking pips?

Nick Robinson reports the effect of the planned tax rises for the top one per cent.

“The Treasury red book spells out the cost of those income tax and NICs rises.

It says that in 2011

  • those on incomes over £40k and below £100k will pay on average £156/year more
  • those on incomes over £100k and below £140k will pay on average £1044/year more
  • those on incomes over £140k and below £200k will pay on average £3168/year more”

And I know Denis Healey never really said that he would “tax the rich till the pips squeak”.

Come to think of it though, I have never heard a pip squeak. MP3s welcome.
