Nothing Changes

I see our brilliant ex socialist leader saved himself a few quid in stamp duties. What was it he said back when... "The tax system is a haven of scams, perks, City deals and profits"

Then as PM Mr Blair said: "Millionaires with the right accountant pay nothing while pensioners pay VAT on fuel.

"Offshore trusts get tax relief while homeowners pay VAT on insurance premiums. We will create a tax system that is fair which is related to ability to pay."

Don't you just love em.

Very rich??? He has ONLY amassed a property empire worth £38 million since leaving Downing Street. I don’t suppose what he did was illegal. Just found a loophole and exploited it.

It wasn't illegal, Broady, not at all. But he was supposedly against all these financial loopholes when he wanted votes.

“ Do as I say, not as I do” Ah well. More important matters to ponder. Who will be the next Wigan coach?

I know, and that other great socialist labour leader is scraping along on his £7.7million. Sir Keir is credit to the working folk of the UK.

When Tony Blair came to power, I think that himself and Gordon Brown had moved the Labour Party politically to the right of the then Conservative Party, and I am serious about that, folk said that the Labour Party had become Tories with red coats on, doo yoo remember that Whupsy, and I remember Dennis Skinner saying in the Winter Gardens in Blackpool, at the Labour Party conference, "we are meeting here this week as Tories"

They all urinate in the same pot, Labour, Tory et al. Wouldn't trust or believe any of them.

Seem to remember ( as I lived in the UK) Blair wearing a red rosette and the Labour Party hailing him as LABOUR Prime Minister. My memory must be playing tricks on me again.

Broady, that was true.

But that was just his ruse de guerre.
