Emphasise tax loopholes not cutting benefits

Yesterday's blog pointed out that insurance for care homes is really significant for the poor and really not significant for the rich. Well done to the Conservatives for supporting the rich. Today the headline is to cut benefits. Well you don't get rich on benefits and if you want to get a second opinion then ask any Tory MP. They can't live on the pittance they call an MP's wage.

It is really hard to take any lectures on poverty from people who can't live on the "rations" that are given to MPs. In previous blogs I have written that the motivation behind the words is more important than the words themselves, and it is headlines like "Tories spell out benefit cut plan" that make it clear which side their bread is buttered. Why don't they make headlines about closing tax loopholes for the rich.

The Rolling Stones manage to pay tax at 1.6%. How about that for everyone's tax payments.

Change the world.
