LibDems Vicious Briefing Against Tories as Osborne Sits Down

Clegg was shaking his head during the mansion tax discussion in the House and he’s clearly still smarting.  LibDem HQ have just sent out a stinging briefing against their coalition buddies:

Conservatives tax cuts for the richest

The only tax cuts the Conservatives support are ones for the very rich. At the General Election, their priority was to cut inheritance tax for millionaires. In the Coalition, Liberal Democrats have blocked these plans and instead we are cutting taxes for millions.

Handbags!

          Liberals are dragging more people into the higher rate of tax by the day. They then borrow to give away to third world countries to help climate change that has not been proved to be man made- idiots the complete lot of them. GE now.

      Denis Healey tried taxing the rich ’till the pips squeaked in the 1970s. It didn’t work. The rich just fucked off abroad.

      Too much tax kills growth. It’s not a new discovery, been known for decades. Do we really want our wealth creators pissing off abroad just now?

        What’s a wealth creator? Is that one of those guys selling SWAPS and derivatives?

        What about the guys that leverage debt then piss off with the golden handshake when (no shit sherlock) the business cannot pay the interest. Little Chef springs to mind and no doubt there are others.

        But stick the term “wealth creator” on someone (Amazon/Starbucks) and they are teflon.

      I was watching the statement on BBC, and every few minutes the camera would focus on a very concerned Vince Cable, sitting forward with a sceptical and ‘nothing to do with me’ look on his face. It was obviously a pose and expression of political distancing. He also looked rather sinister; I expect in a few months the bald old duffer to flounce out from the Cabinet, citing the autumn statement as a bridge too far….what a conceited little shit.

    Maths lesson to Nick Clegg.

    If you buy a house for £100k, never move, but now it’s alleged to be worth £400k after the Pozni house prices keep rising, BUT your take home pay is only £25kpa, having that house DOES NOT make you able to pay more tax, unless you can eat brick instead of bread!

    You can’t sell because all other homes are ridiculous prices, and foreign investment (money laundering) buying up properties in the UK.

    Property taxes are an idiot idea, especially as the work shy get a house / flat for nothing, and are laughing as others have to pay for that property AND for their own.

    That’s the reality of having BA educated politicians, instead of BSc or BEng. Our politicians are dangerously uneducated.

      Quite. Council tax takes no account of a person’s ability to pay. It is effectively a land tax.

      Years ago there was a window tax, so people removed windows and lived in semi darkness, hence the expression “daylight robbery”. Modern Council tax is actually quite similar to this where the number of bedrooms are a major contributor to the bbanding even if they are pokey little rooms knocked out of one big one or not even used as bedrooms.
