Owen Jones: “Please Sir, I Want Some More”

Clearly not content with the royalties from his best selling book about the exploitation of the working classes, higher rate taxpayer Owen Jones wants more:

Don’t tell Laurie!

    Init says:

    Does the taxman take to much Owen?

  2. 2
    Andrew Efiong says:

    Ha. I suspect The Indepedent doesn’t have much money in the first place. Perhaps they could show Mr Jones their shrinking readership stats as proof of this?

    As for Jones, his greed has now been flushed out for all to see! He’s on the run now!

    Ken L says:

    Why don’t you set up a company and have your salary paid into that? Then you only pay corporation tax on it. You can withdraw it at your leisure, pay some to your partner and family, etc. Worked for me.

    Adolf the cuddly bear says:

    Just at look at the deprived cloth-capped underprivilege little prole

  5. 5
    Kevin T says:

    The Indie can really pick ‘em, can’t it. Johann Hari, Laurie Penny, Owen Jones. Clearly the future of the left, real serious writers who you can imagine being around in 20 years. Not just a bunch of spoiled, immature, glorified student rag activists. Oh no.

    Another loathsome unproductive shyster!

  9. 9
    Mr Rotivator says:

    If you only pay corporation tax then you neither haven’t paid yourself a salary from the Company nor a dividend…… or the taxman cometh. Need to stash it oversees old boy.

    Come down now. Tea’s ready! Is Mehdi staying? Its scones and apricot jam?
    Does …erm… erm.Mehdi.. like that ? ..I’ve got some Bombay nuts if he’d prefer?

    This new breed are airheads almost to a man and woman aren’t they?
    We’re all going to hell in a hand-basket if people like this ever get near the button and with the bunch we’re currently enduring, that’s fucking saying something.

    Be fair, Owen Jones wants what every middle class socialist wants.

    A villa in Tuscany.

    I presume he’s either shamed of the poor state primary and comprehensive he attended or – God forbid he was privately educated!

    Oh There’s lovely. Jones! MP in waiting? This boyo may go all the way.
    After the disappointment of Hain it will be special to hopefully, eventually get a minister for Wales with a name that will reverberate around the valleys while he ascends the ladder. Even the sheep no doubt will be satisfied, but chapel folk require more. Can he sing, or will he fail the male voice choir criteria demands required? He looks more Blodwen than Owen.

    Did your experience of studying at Oxford University sharpen your awareness of class inequality?

    “Massively. I grew up in Stockport but had a very different experience there compared with my friends. My dad worked for Sheffield Council and my mum taught IT at Suffolk University.”

    Is there a Suffolk University in the UK?

    Looks like a very tenuous link with reality from Master Jones. The whole interview reads like a Dave Spart rewrite of British History from 1945.

    Yes Owen I know of your fleeting affair with the Socialist Non-working Brigade, but clearly,money will speak and you will not be able to refuse the offer.

    You fell foul of the Legume Trap. Any word with p-e-a in it (such as ‘spe@k’) has you cast into purgatory. The r-i-c-e words (like ‘pr-ice’) have a similar effect.

    It was suggested that Guido had certain dietary aversions. Not so. It’s because some goon started an anti Diane Abbot meme, to do with her size and supposed diet. Like many a kid with a new toy, the said goon wouldn’t put it down, and Ms Abbot became rather tired of it. Understandably. Well, a joke’s a joke, but not ten times a day – so that meme was zapped, and is still being zapped.

    State Hero Third Class Owen was Twittering earlier about how Isr-a-el should face sanctions if Iran does.

    What is it with the left and Isr-a-el? Always whining on about it. The simple answer occurred to me the other day.

    Many think the Joos are behind a loose-knit, seldom-named and yet insidiously effective conspiracy to steer decent, honest, hard working people’s money into their own pockets. They achieve this by implanting themselves into positions of power and influence – particularly the media and entertainment – and then only employ their own kind to limit any resistance to the furthering of their scheme.

    That, in a nutshell, is why lefties hate Joos.

    Andrew Niel and guests managed a few interesting insights into the economy that blew , hard not to feel some pangs of sympathy for sheer scale of wonkness that its politics allowed when medical and food aid is being handed out .
    The ideas around some sort of Marshal plan are interesting ,however I am not sure that some people who made from the boom ,have now escaped the requirement to help out , and because money has fled this increases the size of the begging bowl , which to me doesnt seem right in that rather like some of the banks in the UK enjoying nice salaries from the tax payer , clearly some people have done rather nicely in greece boom and are not on the radar to help out ecnomically .
    The perhaps first thing to be noted (and I dont think we should pay out ) is what gillian tett had to say , “not all the individual eurozone state crisis are the same as greece ” which perhaps gives some salvage aspects . Greece is going to have to run its economy much much better is perhaps its first goal and requirement for help , wether euro or Drachma , never mind how they feel about pasok or golden dawn , it should be obvious that any goverment is going to have run things in a new financially astute way , that gets some minmum social benefits going and tracking down those who have big yatchs and swimming pools for no good reason . The bribe for services has to stop and taxes put in place that work and at least allow some sort of basic economy , anything else and they will be fighting for years and blowing any collective effort towards stability out the window. Stop voting for idiots or Eu stooges and sort political corruption out , right through public services , corruption always impairs function of tax .

    Perhaps form one good and new bank , for benfits to work through , simple banking .

    Perhaps direct aid for food production (as any devaluation will mean food imports cost more ) , perhaps allow some mutual concept for key transport arteries , shipping docks and rail and power generation ,to stabilise income to government , until they can be run privatised .
    They need tourism , so devaluation will help that grow , wheres Stellios ?? so have to put end to riots litter in streets graffiti and robbers , make it nice place to visit .

    Italy could probebly manage a 10yr deficet reduction program , but again needs better governance . Spain has fairly straight forward banking problem re ovevalued assets and few exports , they need perhaps to form a gradual vehicle for toxic assets to be desposed of , or slow haircut , but wonk expensive socialist state has to go as well . Perhaps if any aid for food production .
    I would think Portugal has to devalue along with greece , IMF can then oversee stabilisation , perhaps a new and simple bank also for them . Markets/IMF may be able to cope with just greece and portugal devaluaing .
    No has mentioned Cyprus …….. I would think France ,Germany and Italy can manage debt and deficet reduction between them , but none the less expect cheque book out from them and no funny business , with a few banks going to the wall en route .

    If Euro still cannot work beween first teir countries (and lsitening to UBS chief economist it never has ) then deficet reduction is only way , or big effort to bazooka debts once a few banks have failed , then revert to sovereign currencies and a much smaller EU goverment say in 2 yrs .

    Interesting to note that if EU cuts its own budget , that it would make growth
    too much money on non jobs througout EU in my view .

    Bit skecthy perhaps , but if Gillian tett is right then somthing with a bit more finesse can be done ,to at least keep growth until euro problem can be unlocked into more accountable individual countries . I mean isnt the big question anyhow , is why the euro doesnt and never will work , or am i missing somthing ?? I mean they either have some miraculous way of enforcing fiscal control to same standars in every country , or they never will and no point in carrying on ??

    The banks are just bulging pimple on a deluded pataient ….?

    Working class? Since when has having a mum who is a university lecturer been ‘working class’? University Lecturer is social class A1. It’s like being a medical Doctor or a priest.

    The little c*unt just shrugged it off though. If it was me I’d be beetroot with embarrassment if my deliberate lies were exposed like that in front of an audience of millions. But that little c*unt just teflon-ed on. Pure Labour. If I don’t admit a lie then no lie occurred.

    To polarize the the benefits discussion in the way he does show a complete lack of intelligence, the same lack of intelligence that confuses income with assets

    4) Went on TV to tell us why his depth of experience gives him the right to tell us how to live our lives.

    This “animate object ” ( that’s being generous to a fault) , is a jumped up , inexperienced , wet behind the ears nobody who has somehow finessed the great and good of the media ( including Radio Five Dead at 12 midnight every Friday ) into believing he is the next Walter Kronkheit /Citizen Kane.

    Of course he personally has achieved his medium term aim so cannot be blamed .
    The real patsies ( pasties ??) are the effete semi cerebrally lobotomised media cadre who let themselves be duped by this “person’s ” total incapability of crysatllising a debate by dint of logical argument and have bowed to his vox pop penchant to interrupt others and make a complete bore of himself whilst doing so .

    Another quintessentially apt contender for the Year Zero work camps .

    ( Although his success is of course a sad reflection on the infantile values of the bulk of the chattering classes )

    You have to hand it to him, Owen Jones is Labour’s new greatest comedian.

    The way he appears on TV lecturing everyone on how bad it was under Thatcher with his references to the Jarrow March and I sit there thinking ‘You’re about 25, you can’t event remember the Thatcher years’

    He’s a kid and a grade A plonker but at least he’s funny in action, unlike Milliband or Balls where my instinct is just to cringe when they speak

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
