Is Socialism back?
November 24, 2008 1 Comment
I was always told that Socialism was all about taking as much moeny as they could from you and then when they couldn’t take anymore they would tell you have you should spend what you have left. Part of me fears that we are going down that road again
Lets take the decision to tax the "rich" because it send a great message out (according to the Labour Party). No mention of how it won’t cover the vast increase in public spending.
Then of course lets talk about what means someone is rich. I pay 40% tax, but after I have paid all my bills – including the Â£7k train fare to go to my job I am left with less disposable income than someone I know who is on tax credits. Interesting isn’t it.
I still have my own company in existence. Has the Labour party done anything to help me out in that respect? No. Why – Well they believe government creates jobs and wealth and not business.
My old sparring partner in Chesterfield Tony Benn will be so pleased!
