They have lost trust in politicians to spend their money wisely

Robert Priest (Lecturer in History at Royal Holloway University of London) writes: "the proportion of people in favour of higher taxation and spending has collapsed from 63 per cent to just 37 per cent in the ten years from 2004 to 2014".

That is not because ordinary people are resistant to higher taxation.

It is because they have lost trust in politicians to spend their money wisely (too Blair/Brown channelled it to communities where they bought votes by lavishing public money).
