100 business leaders write to the Torygraph opposing Labour policies! Would be interesting for each of them to have noted their own 'compensation packages' and liability for mansion tax after their signatures. Beginning to think it may, after all, be possible to find a party to vote for this time.

I wonder how many of them personally benefited from the Tory reduction in the top rate of tax?

At a guess, 100% benefit personally from the Tory cuts in the top rate of tax; 100% have done very well personally from the growth of social inequality; 100% have personal experience of their own compensation packages leaping ahead of inflation; 100% own a property or properties that would be liable to the mansion tax; and a broadly similar percentage avoid taxes, both for themselves and for their companies, which they believe to be for little people to pay. No wonder they like the present government and don't want to change it. I'm sure they all genuinely believe that they fully deserve their 'compensation packages' being more than 10x-100x those of their ordinary employees. Yes, their letter today has definitely clarified the issues and helped me decide who to vote for.

I was tickled by how the letter started, "We the undersigned are delighted by the rate at which Corporation tax is charged". Or words to that effect. How nice for them to have such a pleasant recession. It's been trickier for the rest of the population. victims of Atos' profiteering spring to mind.

Jesus we have gone right back to the days of hating profit haven`t we . Look, the country is like a village. Some of us have to go out and kill mammoths so we can all eat
Others sit around the cave healing and teaching, and so on, all very laudible of course, but without the hunters, we starve.

That's a terrible analogy Paul. Yes the village needs hunters, what it doesn't need is someone who with the help of the village elders lays claim to the grove where the trees grow to make spears from and then charges the hunters to cut the wood. While the hunters are out, they then think they are too important to go out and gather firewood with everyone else to cook the meat when the hunters bring it back and because they are friends with the elders, they get to choose which bits of meat they get before everyone else does. That doesn't lead to a healthy society at all.
Nobody hates profit, people hate corruption.

Paul, I used to think that even though you were a Tory you were quite astute. But I'm afraid with your absurd analogy to 'hunters' you've shown yourself up. There's time to withdraw it if you want.

Paul Newman - you do realise mammoths are extinct ? Was it greed of the hunters that killed them off ? An over exploition of resources ? Next you'll be talking about survival of the fittest and eugenics.
