Absolute top post. This paints a vivid picture of exactly what is so wrong about Labour's policies and why they are such a scary proposition. Basically, the narrative from Labour is that everyone who runs a business is a rich tory toff who needs to be whacked with as much tax as possible. They are pointing at the likes of Mike Ashley and making out that he is representative of every business owner in the country. Well, no, simply not true. The reality is that millions of people in this country are employed by small businesses who employ between 1 and 50 staff. People who make sacrifices to start their business, and then continue to do so to try to make it successful. People who take risks with their financial health to ensure that it is successful, who put many many unpaid hours in. Many people will take little or no salary for all their effort because they need to make sure everybody else gets paid before they can allow themselves to be paid. Any if they are then successful, they are not the devil, they deserve their success and any material rewards that may come with it. The message that people get from listening to Labour and seeing the policies that they adopt is that anyone who is successful is a leach on society - success is to be frowned upon. It makes my blood boil and is why I hope to God they never get anywhere near power. They would utterly ruin the country. Such left of centre policies are fine in the debating chamber when a few bits of tax here and a bit of money spent there would make the world perfect, but they have no place in the real world. The talk is that people who earn more than 70k would fall into a new top tax bracket, because they are "rich". In what world is someone who earns 70k a year rich? It is just the politics of envy. Nothing changes.
