Should The T20 Enjoy Subsidies?

Should The T20 Enjoy Subsidies?

A couple of recent events have made us ask this exact question. One being the Prime Minister's announcement that people in the T20 income bracket would no longer get electricity subsidies. Alongside that, a debate online about whether targeted subsidies are fair to people who pay higher taxes. So we unpack this, and heard from our listeners about where they stand on this issue.
