1971... That's Edward Heath... Tory Government... 75% income tax on salaries over equivalent of 2013: £155 000.  AND 90% on bank interest.

Where did we go wrong?

Oh yeah, we threw away The Social Contract.

Our higher tax rates are ridiculously low.

98% taxation is not taxation. It's confiscation.

However, it matters not what the rate of tax is for the richest. They will avoid or evade it anyway.

There's not a lot any political party can do. Human nature being what it is.

If you gave every single person in the country £1000 today, in 48 hours that money will end up in the possession of only about 10% of them.

Liberals are the worst part of any argument. At least the tories and labour have ideas, Liberals sit around with reasons the plans of others don't work. They just disgree with everything offering little in the way of sensible alternative

 

Labour has yet to convince me that it has any ideas at all. The Tories have yet to convince me the have any that really work.

While making a valid point about improving access to apprenticeshis yesterday, Miliband still  referred back to the ridiculous notion of 50% of school leavers going on to university.

He has still got a very long way to go before he persuades me to vote for his lot.

We should probably all agree then that we're all off to hell in a handcart?
Hold on tight!
