Extend tax to millionaires

THIS week, the cuts made by this savage Tory-led coalition Government will start to bite harder for the poor, elderly, unemployed and sick.

The very same week that sees millionaires have their tax cut from 50p to 45p in the pound.

What do the 15 millionaires in the Cabinet know about living on the breadline?

Iain Duncan Smith has been challenged to live on £53 per week, and has said he could do it if he had to.

Bring it on Mr Smith.

This Government is tarring everyone with the same brush.

If you are on disability payment you are a scrounger.

On unemployment benefit, you’d rather close your curtains and stay in bed than get a job.

We now have the spare room bedroom tax, or whatever posh name they give it.

Once again this hits the poorest.

If we are “all in it together” why not extend it to millionaires who own their own property?

That would be fair, wouldn’t it?

Just think of the millions they would make from the Royal Family alone.
