Cows Moo, Dogs Bark, Labour Deny Tax Increase

Harriet Harman has bitten, writing to David Cameron accusing him of lying about her tax rise comments on LBC:

Dear Prime Minister,

You claimed at Prime Minister’s Questions today that “yesterday Labour announced – in an important announcement – that it is now their policy to put up taxes on middle income people”. This is not true. It is a lie.

In fact, as you surely know, since your own party circulated a transcript later, I had made a straightforward defence of our system of progressive taxation – the idea that people on higher incomes should – and do – pay more in tax overall than people on lower incomes. The full quote is here:

“But I would say Henry one of the things that I would argue that might, should probably make a really big difference to you is having a really good health service. Because you don’t want to have to pay for health insurance. You don’t want to have to pay to go private to get really good healthcare system. And I think that is not just for working class people it’s for middle class people as well. And the same with education, you know, really good school system that helps people from lower income families and middle income families as well so I think that actually the idea that there are some things that help people on low incomes and other that help people on middle incomes. Yes I think people on middle incomes should contribute more through their taxes. But actually they need those public services like the transport system.”
Harriet Harman, LBC, 14 July 2014

It is utterly clear that this is not a call for higher taxes, but a defence of a system which has previously commanded wide support, in which people on middle incomes contribute more than people on lower incomes.

While the principle of progressive taxation has been undermined in recent years, by your Government’s decision to raise VAT and to cut the top rate of tax for the highest earners, even you had not seriously questioned it until today.

Our politics, and the quality of public debate, requires that all participants, however much they may disagree, take part in good faith.

Yours sincerely,

Harriet Harman MP
Deputy Leader of the Labour Party

Does anyone seriously believe Labour won’t raise taxes?

For some reason Harman left this part of the transcript out of her letter, presumably because it included another uncosted spending pledge:

“Well I think that is a very interesting point actually Henry because sometimes people feel that they pay in a lot over a long period of time working hard but when they suddenly need unemployment benefit if they lose their job that actually it is nowhere near enough to actually make them feel that it was worth it for them to contribute. And one of the things that we are talking about is making a higher rate the longer you’ve worked to recognise the contributions you’ve paid in if you lose your job.”

How are they going to pay for that, another bankers’ bonus tax?

    Harriet’s remarks are NOT specific to a so-called “progressive” tax system (a system where people on higher incomes pay at higher RATES). A “flat” tax system (where we all pay at the same RATE) also secures that those with higher incomes pay more tax. And such a system is fairer, earn twice as much, pay twice as much. If only the Harperson was as quick to apologise for her PIE connections as she is to take umbrage,

    Is this the same Harriet Harman who (after not being made Deputy PM, after not being invited to make assinine contributions to the G20 Summit and after Caroline Flint had been sacked) claimed that Gordon Brown was not a sexist? And is it the same Harriet Harman who also claimed (just the other day) that Gordon Brown was a sexist, citing (1) the fact that she had not been made Deputy PM, (2) the fact that she had not been invited to make assinine contributions to the G20 Summit and (3) Caroline Flint’s departure as proof to back up her claim? If both of Ms Harman’s faces are related to each other, I really think we should be told.

    I have it on reasonably good authority that some elements of the Co-Op, the so called embodiment of socialist principles and Labour Party funders and bankers, have resorted to underhand tactics to repair the financial damage to the group caused by their ineptitude in the banking arm. Hundreds of redundancies are in the offing which the group are desperate to keep quiet.

    Store managers have been threatening shop staff (that’s the food shop – nothing to do with the banking element except being part of the Cooperative Group) with redundancy if they don’t accept significant changes to working practices including working longer, harder, in split shifts and in other shops up to 30 miles away.

    Apparently the redundancies are to be announced in the next few days and will probably be followed by the exodus of what few loyal customers they have left.

    Margaret Thatcher, who favoured indirect taxation, reduced personal income tax rates during the 1980s. In the first budget after her election victory in 1979, the top rate was reduced from 83% to 60% and the basic rate from 33% to 30%. The basic rate was also cut for three successive budgets – to 29% in the 1986 budget, 27% in 1987 and to 25% in 1988. The top rate of income tax was cut to 40% in the 1988 budget.The investment income surcharge was abolished in 1985.

It’s compassionate to warn people that you’re about to make them homeless. Anyway, it’s quite obvious that with 200 Palestinian deaths and one Is*aeli death in the last week that Is*ael is fighting for survival, what with its tanks, jet fighters, helicopter gunships and nuclear warheads.

    Does Is*ael have a right to exist? Yes. Are Hamas terrorists? Yes. Does Is*ael illegally occupy land and kill civilians? Yes. Will anything change? They’ve been killing each other for 67 years and will still be killing each other in another 67 years.

Is*ael claim to only target Hamas but the attacks on a hospital filled with disabled patients, a fisherman and the children today show that Is*ael kill whoever they like. It’s an excuse to kill as many civilians as possible. For every terrorist they kill, they kill another 50 unarmed women and children. But hey, twas ever thus.

    Follow their tangled web…

    Harriet Harman and Jack Dromey campaigned on behalf of PIE.

    Diplomat Peter Hayman was an active p*edophile who was a member of PIE.

    Geoffrey Dickens named Hayman in parliament.

    After naming Hayman and declaring he would name another 8 high ranking p*edophiles, Geoffrey Dickens received death threats and his home was broken into twice. He died suddenly in 1985.

    Attorney General Michael Havers decided Hayman should not be prosecuted for possessing child porn.

    Michael Havers was an active p*edophile.

    Sir Peter Morrison was Mrs Thatcher’s PPS. He was also exposed after his death as an active p*edophile who’d visited care homes with other senior politicians.

    Tony Blair put a D notice on the findings of Operation Ore which named senior Labour politicians as p*edophiles.

    Michael Havers’ sister, Elizabeth Butler-Sloss, covered up abuse by a bishop in a report because she “cares about the church”.

    Butler-Sloss was appointed to head an inquiry into abuse in which her brother is among those suspected.

    Of course. The majority of the commenters here are venal tribalists who don’t care about child abuse unless it’s an opportunity for political pointscoring. The intelligent position to take, i.e beyond the capacity of most here, would be to condemn abuse committed by politicians across all parties, but of course instead you see the hilariously transparent hypocrisy of comments about Smith, Labour, PIE and the D notice but almost virtual silence over Tory abusers except to call the inquiry a witch hunt. Sad but predictable. Though there’s also the likelihood that a percentage of those who want silence on 80s abuse by senior Tories are themselves involved.

    I would argue along Ayn Rand’s lines that State provided national health care systems are actually quite oppressive as they inevitably force coercion of a large section of the population to work for them denying individuals in that section their liberty.

    Moreover, in the UK now, with the employment in the State health care system of foreign trained staff this large employer is oppressing further that section of society who were already having their liberty denied by further denying them the opportunity of employment.

    State provided national health care systems are an existential threat to individual liberty.

Instead of wanting justice for victims of all abuse, the commenters here are tribalists who’ll happily talk about PIE and Labour all day long but react with venom when someone points out that the Tories also have abusers. Here’s a handy tip: no one believes any more that the Tories are all heterosexual family men. That image evaporated years ago. As much as some would wish it otherwise, we know about the exploits of Harvey Proctor, Boothby, Keith Joseph, Boyson, Peter Hayman, Peter Morrison and all the abusers yet to be named.

    I caught the BBC article earlier today and really only read the headline / byline and first para.

    Should have known better than to pop over to the BBC ‘News’ site – World is going to end / child abuse / You are a rac’ist messages all over, with pictures of people who look different to me having a great time, with a socialist red theme. What kind of site is that really ?

    Picture of the laptop with matrix display and glowing keys – where do the graphics department get their screen savers ? Ans: Tor ?

    You should hop on to the dark-web doxbin site if you want to find some real info. A lot of interesting details there.

    Obsessing about p’edo’s is not really my thing – move on – it is soooo 2013.

    I do not watch UK TV anymore. If you stop watching it also, after a few weeks you will find your quality of will improve significantly. May catch it on youTube when it gets posted up – if it’s any good will turn it into a music vid.

    Replied to your missive on facts above.

    The cover up would not be cross party – one would need to look behind the fridge to see where the cover up was constructed, and maybe why.

    But a new narrative of cross party covering up is very very bad news indeed for the parties, or at least it should be. Their credibility perhaps due for the same shredding treatment that Fred tried at R’B’S ?

    There must be some more to the S’mith story.

    D’anczuk’s involvement is concerning. He is the Labour MP for R’ochdale, so his motivations here are very likely political in order to try and ensure he gets re-elected next year.

    Attempting to whip up another S’avilesque reaction from the public is either a measure or a counter-measure. Seems maybe counter-measure, but what / whose measure could it be countering ?

The many embarrassing interviews held by smug-face Regev have been removed from his Wiki page. Just check the very short current page and then examine the history that shows the thousands of edits made to remove his more magic moments.

    That’s a smashing wheeze for those who earn a lot of ‘income ‘ meaning wages

    For those who earn ‘ Other income ‘ let’s say share bounuses what progressive or flat rate of tax should they pay?

    All parties have shimmed around the fact that tax allowances exist because hourly rates of pay are poor and have been for donkeys years.

    Cleggy’s little nibbling round the edges with a 10k allowance is a fraud because a lot of part time workers ( normally women but more men are falling into this bracket ) will get nowhere near 10k per year in the current jobs climate.

    The idea of a tax allowance only highlights the case for higher hourly rates.

    With current employment figures being manipulated to suit ( jobs created is not the same as in work- PAYE ) this hourly pay situation has no chance of changing. Certainly not under Labour similarto the current Coalition.

    There is a constant lie about tiers of tax rates that is utterly false. No taxpayer pays a 45% rate of tax. It is tiered at 22% up to a certain amount of income and goes up gradually and stops at 45% depending on income.

    Anyone who pays 45% either has a lousy accountant or should change jobs.

    Also the Gross Tax – National Insurance has an upper earnings limit. Above a ceratin tier that is limited too. A bit like the Council Tax on London Millionaires empty houses.

    All I’m saying is that you wouldn’t need all this fannying about if pay was higher. Just work out the average amount of income per head and note carefully that in any average the smallest percentage of the average will be the least and the biggest percent will be the most. That means that a fair few rich buggers are earning a lot more than the many poorer buggers.

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.”
