I was listening to David Cameron this morning on the Andrew Marr show. Have you noticed how often he uses this phrase? It’s also used a lot by Theresa May, George Osborne and other members of the Cabinet.
Is it just me, or are there others who think this might mean ‘I am going to obfuscate but in a way which makes it sound simple because we don’t think you’re clever enough to understand what’s really going on’ … :crazy:
And as for George Osborne. Saying that he’s not going to have a mansion tax because it’s ‘not fair’ to ‘clobber’ the rich with extra taxes … because they have ‘worked hard’ for it.
Excuse me? Do only rich people work hard, Mr Osborne? What about the millions of people here who work all the hours just to try and make ends meet and look after their families? You don’t seem to have any compunction about clobbering them – or those who are retired … who after all have worked hard all their lives and paid their taxes – or those who are disabled …
I am FURIOUS
