Good NuLab practicing true socialism Good to see that old Gordon has his priorities right again. Having screwed the lower paid by removing the 10% tax bracket, he was wondering how to further increase tax revenue but without having to wait until the Budget to start raking in the cash. Answer: pay the poor people more. Now that they are being taxed at 20% instead of 10% the Treasury can claw back even more money while the poor proles think they are getting more cash. It isn't a tax rise because companies will have to pay for it. Brilliant. He realised that he also had to curry a bit of favour with the TUC in order to keep them sweet during the spring conference season. Result: wages to rise to 5.73 an hour. This represents a 60% increase since NuLab lied their way into power. No inflationary pressure or negative effect on Britain's competitiveness index. No, none at all. What is scary is the total lack of economics displayed by the usual twÃ¡ts of the Left who came out to applaud their fellow stalinist like monkeys on bongo drums: TUC general secretary Brendan Barber welcomed the policy, saying (well quite you stupid cÃºnt: they will pass on the increased costs onto their consumers, thus fuelling inflation and harming UK companies competitiveness on the global market.) And another idiot: Tony Woodley, joint leader of Unite, wanted to see the rate increase to more than Â£6. FÃºck it! Why not pay everyone 50 billion pounds a week? Obviously a "green" alternative to banknotes will have to be found. All NuLab have to do is appoint a few of their chums to the quango that runs the Royal Mint, then ask them to print off a few trillion extra pounds. That way everyone will be a billionaire and happy. (BTW, Toney Woodley will shortly be dissapeared to a Gulag for claiming that insurance is over 2.2%) 6 quid an hour for pushing trolleys, dribbling over the produce while stacking shelves or doing any one of a million mindless, unskilled jobs which the vast unwashed are only capable of (thanks to generations of socialist education and social engineering). Why are they worth 6 quid? It is not enough to get people off the social security career/life choice, and it is too much to pay for the most menial of jobs that require no skill, aptitude, dedication or any other ability or education (perfect jobs for NuLab supporters and Sven). Just as the global economy hits a hard spot NuLab shoots the commercial sector in the back... well, I suppose it is one way to make sure the middle classes can no longer go to the Proms. Good old Gordon. Under the old scheme a burger flipper on minumum wage would pay 1,108GBP tax per annum. They now pay 1,296GBP per annum. Workers unite! Annual income generated in tax receipts from these poor bÃ¡stards? If only 1million people benefit then the income tax is 87.3 million. I didn't bother finding out the National Insurance ramifications.
