    An inelegant title to this thread, but I've just heard on the news that the Chancellor Mr What'isname has promised the revolting ZANU Labour backbenchers that those who loose out over the scrapping of the 10% tax rate will be compensated through tax credits and other handouts.

    F'cking unbelievable. ZANU Labour take honest decent tax payers and turns them into clients of the state. Presumably at the next election all these new scroungers will be reminded that the horrible Tories will take their benefits away from them so better vote ZANU!
  2. Linking this disreputable apology for a government with ZANU PF is an insult - to ZANU PF.
  3. Nu liarbor my ass, its old school socialism in action here.
  4. Well there's more than one way to skin a cat!

    If you can't turn the people into slaves of Marx by straight out lies, do it by stealth. Remember stealth and spin are the trademarks of nulabour.

    Spot the difference:



    One is comedy character who is a completely out of his depth, pen-pushing, desk-sucking, blotter-jotter and the other is a fictional character representing the honourable men of Britain doing their best in difficult circumstances not of their making.

    I know which on I'd rather have on my side.
  7. Didn't our Dear Leader also add that the minimum wage would be increased? That means employers will have to find more money to make up the loss in caused by this incompetent shower of s**t.
  8. Apparently two years ago Cameron wanted to scrap the 10p rate - why is He suddenly jumping up and down about it?

    Possibly he had a vision of scrapping all the massively complex [and Civil Servant employing] sub-structures in the taxation system?

    Like ...

    If you earn money, the Government will tax you 20% of it. Full stop.
    [and possibly take another 12% or whatever for National Insurance to pay for the NHS etc.].

    If you are unemployed, get a job. Its not impossible to find one. Stop loafing.

    if you want to have babies, you pay for them, instead of just being subsidised for your personal choices by everyone else. Or buy a condom or two.

    That sort of common sense stuff, as opposed to an imaginary "class war".
  10. I think its completely unfair to compare labour with ZANU PF..........

    They faced an election at least! Brown is a to**er, so is darling. I know that this tax kerfuffle doesnt hit most squaddies but there are plenty of wives / husbands of squaddies who are on these lower wages who are getting hit now. This government are completley incapable of anything, i know Cameron probably wont be any better but id at least like to be allowed the choice to vote.

    Nu lairbore - complete and utter C*nts

    P.s why is it that they always dodge questions by saying 'the important thing to remember' or 'what we musnt lose sight of'
  11. Who will not get it back through tax credits either, ever.
  12. I asked on the other thread - who on the forum is for the 10p tax band and who is against it?

    I for one am in favour.
  13. Labour has this Thing about making people ask the state for what is rightfully theirs.
    My friend says it's it all part of a socialist plot to assist giving the government further control over individuals, very very Communist.
  14. So You are in favour of the tax band then, John?
