The country can't afford Labour

FORTY FIVE PER CENT.

Why don't they just go on the TV and say 'We hate you and we certainly don't want you to work hard to earn more money.'

They're certainly doing their best to bankrupt the country.

I have two questions:
1) How long can the country afford a Labour government
2) How long can the country afford to stay in the EU?

1) About nine years ago.
2) About twenty three years ago.

Just how many people earn £150k plus? Wouldn't the 45% rate be, in effect, a windfall tax on investment bankers and Directors of Social Services, for example?I reckon this is a smoke and mirrors trick to make the gullible look the other way while tax thresholds are frozen. I would prefer a 98% income tax rate for Jonathan Ross.

Q1. About another ten minutes.
Q2. About another ten seconds.

(and even that's going to cost us)





I don't believe this. Word ver is 'ingsac'. Sooo close.

It's like the last section of "Atlas Shrugged" but with no John Galt.

Desperate times.
