So he\’s said to say:
Steve Cram: I\’m a socialist so I don\’t mind taxes
Well, what he actually says is:
Strangely, I don\’t mind paying my taxes because, being a bit of a socialist, I can see the value of the services that they go towards.
That\’s hardly socialist: you could run anyone on that platform, from me to Mother Theresa or Joe Stalin. The argument is about which services are worth the tax that\’s being paid for them……
There\’s also this:
Getting both my kids through university – Marcus is attending Fettes in Edinburgh and Josie is at Leeds University.
Fettes? The Scottish Eton?
I think being in control of your own affairs is very important because if you make a bad judgement call, then the onus is on you.
Odd sort of socialism really.
