Lincoln TUSC put Tory MP under media spotlight over tampon tax vote
Lincoln Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) made the local media headlines this week when they condemned the city's Tory MP, Karl McCartney, for opposing the abolition of a 5% VAT charge on sanitary products.
The Tory MP, having previously voted to cut the top rate of income tax and corporation tax, was challenged to explain "why he voted to maintain the 5% tax on essential sanitary products, but is happy to vote to cut taxes for big businesses and the wealthiest people in our society".
