Times are hard, you know. Only relentless dedication to austerity will get us out of this mess of Labour's making. That's why it's important for the government to be giving away tax revenue to the wealthiest 3%, particularly when they didn't do anything to earn it.
Loved this little piece of dishonesty:
"Inheritance tax should only be paid for by the rich. It shouldn't be paid for by people who have worked hard and saved, and bought a family house in, say, Peacehaven [a town near Brighton].
Except it isn't paid by the people who "worked hard and saved" for that house. Those people are dead, so they can't pay anything. It's paid by their offspring who did fuck all for it other than happening to be born out of the right vagina.
I've lived in Britain for 25 years but stuff like this just makes me think someone has abducted me to an alien planet, it's just so utterly brain dead. Someone remind me again why so many ordinary people (ie, those not in the 1%, or even the 3%) vote tory? I mean, is there some mass infant lobotomy program I haven't been told about?
