A little while ago I gave my opinion about the Govt. attacks on so called benefit cheats. I stated that this high profile attack on the tiny number of benefit cheats was a diversion to get the population looking the other way while the massive fraudsters who dodge paying tax get away with billions of pounds. Cameron says while polishing his knuckle duster things which are guaranteed to have the SUN and the DAILY MAIL salivating and every lounge bar Alf Garnett in the land licking his lips in anticipation. “£1.5bn is being stolen from taxpayers” says Dave “it’s unacceptable” "It's quite wrong that there are people in our society who will behave like this. But we will not shrug our shoulders and let them get away with it any longer." He doesn’t mean them all though; I’ll come back to that; you can hear the retired cretinous old colonels in their Whitehall clubs harrumphing in support.
Tax fraud perpetrated by the Tories friends costs the country an estimated £95bn a year while benefit fraud costs £1.5bn per year! Dave’s remarks on this? Let me know if you can find any. Meanwhile Dave has appointed Sir Philip Green to carry out an external review of public spending cuts; this guy paid himself a tax-free dividend of £1.2bn which found its way to his Monaco-resident wife’s bank account, in order to avoid UK Treasury attention. A tax saving to Sir Philip or a “nice little earner” as he would no doubt call it of £300m. “All in this together” that’s another one of Dave’s. ‘Barrow Boy’ Green gladly supported the Tory pre. Election promise to reduce tax and was met with the following response from guess who?
"I have no time for billionaire tax dodgers who step off the plane from their tax havens into the country where they make their money and have the effrontery to tell us how to vote and how to run our tax policies. If some of them came onshore and paid their taxes it would make a useful dent in the budget deficit." Gordon Brown? Alistair Darling?Jim Sheridan? Me? No it was none other than Vince Cable the man who promised to bring Libdem values to the coalition, yes he really did use the phrase Libdem values.
And finally, no reference to benefit fraud could ever be complete without mention of the world leaders in the field; that dysfunctional family of scroungers who soak us for millions of pounds every year; The Windsors; over the years this workshy bunch of simpletons have taken more in benefits than an army of benefit cheats could ever have done. Prince Charles for instance works a 7 hour week and gets paid £2,000 an hour paid for by us while we also pay £180,000 for paper clips envelopes and pencils as well. Dave doesn’t include them or the tax dodging millionaires when he refers to us “ALL BEING IN THIS TOGETHER” does he? Dave’s favourite gear is reverse; at speed; all the way back to the glorious Thatcher years; I bet all those who voted Libdem are really proud of themselves; can anyone ever bring themselves to vote for them again? and remember they are cheek by jowel with the SNP in Renfrewshire Council, some people have no shame have they?
