In today’s budget, Philip Hammond announced that self-employed people will face an increase in the amount of tax they pay.

National Insurance contributions paid by the self-employed will increase from 9% to 10% in 2018.

Hammond says that is making things fairer, as self-employed people currently pay less.

Because self-employed people have things so easy, right?

Because all self-employed people are high-earning entrepreneurs, aren't they?

It's their tax we really need to crack down on, obviously?
