    Imagine Labour getting in Anyone earning over £30k in the private sector to present themselves for re-education.

    The provisional results from the April 2014 ASHE report gives median gross annual earnings of £22,044 for all employees
    1.5 times the median, you forget how lucky we are.

    It was lots of money when property prices were 3-4 times lower than they are now, fuel was half the price...

    Gahh! I wish I could kick his teeth through his smug head (Hammond that is). Why didn't he just leave the marginal band where it was last year? He's tinkering around (no doubt helped by advisors fresh out of uni with an axe to grind against "The Rich" because they have no desire or capability to take risk) and running out of ideas.

    Meanwhile the UK gives away billions in foreign aid. Pakistan at the top of the list. You should see the size of the Pakistan air force - is that where our money is going? I see from my latest council tax breakdown that 32% goes to welfare. Eh?

    Caffe Nero hasn't paid CT in years because it transfers profits to a parent company that runs an overall loss.

    Phil, put this in yer Tory manifesto and impress me:

    1. We will grow some balls to go after big business;
    2. We will clamp down on welfare abuse;
    3. We will leave direct taxation alone and give SMEs a break (at least until 2020);
    4. I won't flip-flop any more and I'll hire some better advisors;
    5. I'll drop the "fairness" bulltulip cos I know nobody's buying;
    6. I'll get a more modern haircut.

    That'll do for me. Going for a sit-down and nice cup of tea.

    That doesn't sound right. Are you sure you don't mean social care?

    Manifesto promise to increase it to £50k, now that goes out of the window, it's only fair.

    You're a good few election cycles away from that level of earnings, matey, so don't worry too much.

    Well, I glossed over that one. Coming originally from the mouths of Boris and Gove, that assertion is unsafe.

    Let me quote the late George Carlin:

    "The upper class keeps all of the money, pays none of the taxes. The middle class pays all of the taxes, does all of the work. The poor are there just to scare the tulip out of the middle class. Keep 'em showin' up at those jobs."
    You're awesome! Get yourself a t-shirt.
