In defence of the rich

SHARE
An excellent Boris defence of the rich. "The top one per cent of earners now pay 29.8 per cent of all the income tax and National Insurance received by the Treasury."

  1. We desperately need more egalitarianism than we have; soon we will be like the USA with no real middle-class, and then I will choose between suicide and emigration.

  2. I am in Romania for 15 years but majority of people these days are middle class in the UK or think they are - not so many manual workers.

    1. There's much more to being middle-class than being a non-manual worker. The key factor for the Americans, and I somewhat agree with them, is job security.

  3. All income gains since 2008 have gone to the top one percent, so they are in a fine position to pay more.
