Nick Clegg's wealth tax to pay for the work-shy

51 comments  Add a comment

I for one am totally sick to the back teeth of working all of the hours I can just to pay my way in life and have precious little left over.  At every turn we are 'screwed' by this Government, in one form of drip-fed tax or another and Nick Clegg's wealth tax is just the latest one designed to punish hard working 'wealth generating' business people.

I run my own business and employ people, for what I personally earn out of the business it feels at times that I would be better on on benefits, no rent, no council tax, money in my pocket and no hassle...

Taxes would be a lot lower all round if the Government stopped being the 'cash machine' for all of the lost causes both at home and abroad, All of the 'Infidels' from the latest 'hole' who want to come here and sponge off us..  just send them back I say!

As for all of the work shy generation(s) where no one in their family has ever worked and yet they still seem to be better off than you or I...  well simply make them work for their benefits!  If they want handouts they should have to earn them first! 

This country is bankrupt, let's face it...

Nick Clegg wealth tax This country is bankrupt, let's face it.  It would serve the Government right if decent hard working entrepreneurs like myself and all the decent and hard working businessmen who employ people and create wealth moved their money and businesses abroad.

In the UK, you are rewarded with benefits for being idle and work-shy, if you work hard you are punished financially - plain and simple.  Where is the incentive to run a successful business?

I am sick of seeing BILLIONS of pounds being literally thrown away by the Government, to Europe, asylum seekers, bone idle work-shy, constant 'breeders' just to get a bigger paid for house...

There is no way I intend bailing the Government out - If I ran my business like they run the country would go bust in a very short time!

Bulldog, I hope for your sake you are not one of the many on welfare, cause these new attitude tests that are being implemented at the benefit offices will not put you in a very good light with the staff!!!!!!!

Oh how I disagree with the original poster. I've run business and am disgusted at all the characters who whine about the 'tax' they have deducted - that 'tax' you have to pay is for the sick and the olds - yes for them. Be it for clothes, heating, trinkets, restuarants etc. etc. If I give money to the taxman I expect it to GO to the taxman, not to pay people to do a lot of moaning - they wanted to do the job in the first place. As the taxman does so much, it must bring in plenty of help for the vulnerables

Strangely, my father-in-law did a paye type job once. I'm not sure how much he was taxed (though not an enormous amount) he earned considerably more selling his various business concerns to the government and the irony - the main yearly tax bill failed to show up in the post - and he kept all that money!!!

Benefits feed the economy, the largest drain on benefits is Housing benefit which is claimed by millions of people who work low paid jobs. It keeps the banks going, they will always blame the unemployed but the fact is that Housing benefit for those in work amounts to more than half of the benefits bill. Most of the rest is taken up in the salaries of box tickers who work in the unemployment industry. Yes I feel your pain as regards to tax and NI but that will never change! If the unemployed were to vanish tomorrow your tax bill would still be the same.

Actually it is our fault. All of us. We wanted the nice house and cars, we also wanted the banks to lend us the money, and when we couldn't pay it back....

When rich, we wanted better shares dividends from the banks and they had to get more and more business to feed our appetites so leant money to people who couldn't repay.

So if you want someone to blame look in the mirror.

And its their fault the country is in the mess its in not the bankers and government and the big businessmen paying next to no tax an then moaning when it goes up , they will just look for more loop holes to pay less and dont say you wont , but ordinary joe blogs doesnt have that luxury he has to pay every penny he owes ,and as for the dole scum you talk about they take one percent of the benefits bill gov figures the rest are working people who have to get benefits on top of their wages that you and others like you pay them so try pointing the finger inward not outward .

miserablemoaninggit you are just pointing finger at the rich, but that's not the fundamental problem. Britain's tax is already high as it is. If you keep raising taxes for the rich they'll just b*gger off to Spain instead and that does the UK no good. Fingers should always be pointed at the work-shys, the doley scum, etc. as they are the root cause of UK's problems.

tinkerman is correct in what he says. It is regrettable that working class people do turn upon each other, demanding things like teachers and policemen be paid peanuts, as if that is the problem.

At the end of the day, we are living in a country with fundamental unfairness in terms of the distribution of wealth. And yes, the failure of successive governments to deal with rampant immigration - a continuing problem despite the rhetoric of the present crazy government - greatly adds to the problem.

Were we asked if we wanted mass immigration? Like my friend in Salford, over a few short years finding himself surrounded by people from Zimbabwe, Nigeria and Somalia, Polish and Czechs - with wrecked vehicles on their drives, tyres and mattresses in the garden, greenery in the gardens ripped up and slabbed. I'm not blaming them - they have not had the time to integrate and have different cultural outlook.

The country is becoming increasingly segregated - between races, tribes, religions and wealth. The salaries of so many people are an actual obscenity!

Were we asked if we wanted any of this? NO!

Got to say as someone who fits with and lives next to people who fit Grumpy's description of life at the bottom that Grumpy and tinkerman are the ones amking sense.
As for honest truth, saying that they didn't go out thieving even though it was a choice between heating and eating, they're simply mugging themselves off doing that.
Buy food, balls to EDF or the others. They won't buy you dinner even if you cry down the phone to them about your poverty.
Tinkerman makes sense talking about the businessmen with their tax fiddles who pay a smaller % than their cleaners.
They're as much parasites on society as they employ foreigners who will put up with crap wages and conditions leaving our youth to be left on the scrapheap of unemployment or petty crime to get by.
They justify it by saying they're creating jobs or some such, but the lower paid have to be topped up by the taxpayers with credits and some times housing benefits, which is still costing your average worker who lives in the same street as them who may earn a bit more.

Yes! The government should cut all public sector wages to £6.19/hour, fixed. Plus they should cut all benefits down to £0.99 a day. And all businessmen should register their businesses in Gibraltar! Simple! Don't let your hard erned cash go to lazy bloody dole scroungers!

I agree somewhat with what you say about it being unfair for you to have to pay more tax,i think its disgusting to see public servants wanting more , teachers,police,nhs workers,social workers,council workers etc should have their pay cut by 50% at least and no fancy pensions.

There have been many multi millionaire businessmen who openly brag that they pay less tax than their cleaners on national minimum wage wholook after their luxury houses every day.
The big mistake the working class make is to turn on itself and fight each other whilst the real scroungers get away with ten times more and think that all the other poor dopes deserve to get shafted.
Instead of pushing the govt to sort out societies problems they ignore an incompetant govt which does tax deals with multinationals whereby they pay a pittance in taxes with the difference having to be made up by us the PAYE taxpayer. We end up working damned hard and then paying over 35% in tax and the govt decieves us into thinking that we have a right to look down on the ones they label scroungers. Look at it another way, if there were jobs available you might have a reason to complain but incompetant Govt and rampant immigration has meant 200 applying for every job, the british worker has a bad reputation for being workshy so they dont even get an interview whilst the immmigrants are seen as models of industry and hard grafters. The young have no chance as industry prefers to employ immigrants rather than pay to train our young apprentices and the government is actually committed to staying in the EU no matter what the people vote.
