From The Guardian:

Britain will go into the next general election with taxes at their highest level since 1948

I’m not particularly against well-thought out tax plans or tax increases for those who can afford them, particularly in times of crisis. Taxes are an essential component of any public service or social safety net.

But the Conservatives must not be allowed to get away with pretending they’re some kind of low tax government just because they promote any tax decreasing components of their plans whilst obfuscating the increases.
