Cardinal attacks 'immoral' PM

Cardinal attacks 'immoral' PM
Scotland's most senior Roman Catholic has launched a fierce attack on David Cameron for what he said was an immoral bias towards helping the rich. In an interview with the BBC, Cardinal Keith O'Brien urged the Prime Minister not just to help "your very rich colleagues".

This morning the Liberal Democrat president Tim Farron admitted the Cardinal’s comments would “sting” many MPs, and backed his calls for a financial transaction tax. Mr Farron told Sky News the rise in the income tax threshold would help many poorer people, but conceded that ultimately “the people who are suffering the worst at any time of austerity are bound to be the least well-off”.
