Lib Dems plan tax for super rich
That gaggle of nimrods the Lib-Dems, are lashing out with the cut vines that provide them with year round sour grapes.
Lib Dem treasury spokesman Vince Cable says he wants to end the “ridiculous anomaly” which sees the owners of homes worth millions paying only council tax.
The only ‘ridiculous anomaly’ here is that these morons still make noises like they matter to anyone. They have no ideas of their own, do not even have a original twists on old ideas, and time after time demonstrate that they have even less understanding about what is really going on in the world.
These are the same idiots who are totally against the ID card because it will probe into people’s private lives and give snooping powers to every Tom Dick and Harry, but who with the same tongue, push for a local income tax to replace the rates. Duh; the same council workers who would run that ‘service’ would be into your most personal business on an unprecedented scale under such a wicked and stupid idea much worse than in the ID card scenario.
These cretins couldn’t think their way out of a wet paper bag.
Mr Cable told BBC News he had scrapped plans for a levy on properties worth £1m – but he was still considering a tax on the homes of the “super rich”.
Sour Grapes, jealousy, ignorance, disregard for consequences. That is what these fools and this fool in particular are all about. This announcement and its language are the most base sort of call to gutter emotions and SHAME on anyone who sinks to this level, or who thinks that people are so stupid that they will go along with the ‘politics of jealousy’. This is not the 1970′ you stupid fool.
He said he would be announcing detailed proposals later this year.
And in a speech to the party’s spring conference, Mr Cable told wealthy non-domiciles to “pay up or pack up”.
These catch-phrases betray his simple mindedness, and his disregard for the British people. Everyone has had enough of this sort of garbage, this trash talk, this empty rhetoric, these recycled ideas stapled together on pieces of scrap paper in steering meetings.
Thank heavens these jackasses do not have a hope of being elected.
Labour and the Conservatives have both outlined plans for a levy on non-domiciled foreign nationals who pay no tax on their overseas earnings, but Mr Cable said they had not gone anywhere near far enough.
The Tories will drop these insane plans. Labor…well, we know all about them don’t we?
He said: “After 10 years of dithering Gordon Brown has decided to act.
As a veteran of the struggle against Mrs Thatcher’s poll tax, he has decided – you’ve guessed already – to introduce a poll tax.
“Billionaire Lakshmi Mittal is to pay the same tax as a non-dom shopkeeper.
“Not surprisingly, the Tories agree that this is fair, indeed, they claim to have thought of it first.
The non-dom fiasco has already blown up in the face of Neu Labour, and London is going to suffer as a result of it. This is nothing to be happy about or to trumpet, unless you are a delusional half-wit like Cable.
“Yet there has been an almost hysterical reaction from the City. How dare British politicians query the tax privileges of the rich?
“If we are not careful, they say, Russian and Ukrainian oligarchs living in 80m houses will no longer feel welcome and go somewhere else.
This is the sort of nonsense that has caused the flight from London. This is what happens when you let pinheads get onto a microphone or even worse, into the legislature. These petty minded, unexposed, foolish, and unthinking monkeys are hell bend on dismantling what is left of Britain, all for a few symbolic pennies. The whining speech, the stereotyping and the base thought of this bad man are actually THE PROBLEM.
‘Pay up or pack up’
“That’s tough. Let them go. We say that foreign expatriates are welcome to live and work in Britain.
“But when they have been here seven years, they pay British tax like the rest of us. Pay up or pack up.”
And, you total idiot, that is exactly what they are doing. They are taking themselves, their businesses, their clients, their art, their patronage, EVERYTHING with them, and they are NOT COMING BACK. They are firing their British employees, closing their offices, moving their bank accounts. They are leaving nothing behind; they are moving all their company registered offices…they are not leaving a single pencil behind.
You have what you wanted. They are packing up and leaving.
Mr Cable also said he wanted to be more “radical” in his approach to taxation.
“I would like to see a much tougher approach to the windfalls on property and land values enjoyed by the super rich,” he told delegates.
At last year’s Lib Dem spring conference Mr Cable floated the idea of an annual 1% levy on homes worth more than £1m.
Not only is this insane, it is immoral and very probably illegal under EU law.
He told BBC News he had dropped that idea as unworkable – but he still wanted to devise a way of extracting more tax revenue from the owners of very high value homes.
He said the fact that some houses in London were worth £80m or more but the owners only paid council tax on them was a “ridiculous anomaly that has to be addressed”.
He said the cash generated should be used to cut tax on low- and middle- income families, with the aim of taking some of them out of the tax system altogether.
This is a LIE because the amount of money raised will not be enough to cover what he is planning, which is, in essence, “I will steal from the rich to give you money so vote for us”.
An appalling and disgraceful sentiment.
Mr Cable also used his conference speech to set out proposals for an increase in tax on “high alcohol” drinks to be offset by a cut in the VAT on fruit juices from 17.5% to 5%.http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/7284895.stm
More tweaking and coercion. Sad and pathetic.
I hear the sound of toilets flushing.
It is the sound of the Liberal Democrats being disposed of with their intellectual bedfellows; SHIT.
