Today I was listening Natilie Bennett on Radio 2. She was talking about the citizen wage which for all of you that don't know is the state paying every citizen, regardless of wealth, £72 pounds a week.
Just imagine what the left would be saying if Mrs Thatcher had come up with such a policy. Lets be honest, her poll tax policy was very similar, every citizen in work and over 18 paying £36 rates regardless of wealth. The great unwashed weren't irritated by the £36 it was the fact that they were paying the same as the rich, in the Greens policy the rich will be recieving the same amount as the great unwashed.
When asked how this would benefit people the Ausie nutcase replied "well it would mean people could stay at home and be artists" ( I'm not kidding )
Do we really need crack pot parties like this muddying the waters?

Since it would be very disrespectful to use a military rank which one is not entitled to use, I am also interested to know when and where you were a Colonel ?

Bit confused are you not Colonel? Bit of a difference between everybody paying the same and everybody receiving the same.
Citizen's income is an interesting idea but one for which I have yet to see a wholly convincing case.
The Greens have far madder policies though.

The Green party dropped the citizens income as a Policy when Natalie Bennet inadvertently revealed she had no idea how to pay for it . I believe it is currently an"aspiration"
Tell you a bit of Lefty hypocrisy I am enjoying right now, its GPs on £100,000 pa ( plus ) writing to the Guardian to say that the NHS should never NEVER NEVER source private providers . when they are ..eeeeerm ....the part of the NHS which has always been privately owned, run and managed, as contractors to the larger organisation.
De Noive of dem guys eh.

I must say I don`t take the opinions of "Business leaders " very seriously , they are usually in favour of boosting demand whatever the consequences and in my eyes were damned in perpetuity when we had the same sort of list telling us we would be cast into economic darkness if we didn`t join the Euro ( along with the Liberal Party and most of the Labour Party , other than Brown... to his credit)
Still the fact that Labour cannot locate anyone on the wealth creation side to give them a thumbs up is a fair reflection of how left wing this campaign has been.

Thank you, Paul for your confirmation that GPs' are on a hundred grand; and still baulk at the idea of being available when patients- sorry, customers- can see them if they are out at work.
I know that they are highly trained professional people; but so are firemen,police, ambulance crews- all of whom have to work a 24hr. shift system, on far less salary.

We are always being told that CEOs of major companies etc have to be paid vast amounts of money to ensure they are the best people for the job.
If the NHS is privatised further by the Tories, you can be sure GPs will be paid a lot more. I know two GPs and both earn about 60k a year working 5 days a week. Not all GPs are on the 100k figure. To be honest I think it is right that they are paid these amounts. I would like our other public servants - police, fire crews, nurses, teachers etc to be paid better as well, many of whom are on less than national average salaries.
