Third, poll after poll shows overwhelming public support for a tax on bankers\’ bonuses; a mansion tax on multimillion-pound properties; a windfall levy on the oil and utility companies; a Robin Hood tax on financial transactions; and a one-off wealth tax of 20% on the richest 10% of households (which would raise a whopping £800bn and, according to YouGov, is backed by three out of four voters).
Increasing taxes on the rich to help reduce the deficit isn\’t \”class warfare\”,
No, no Mehdi, that\’s not class warfare at all.
We know that the average wealth of the top 10% of households is £850,000. That\’s property, private pension plans, the lot. What you\’re in fact asking is that just about anyone with a decent house in the SE and a pension needs to stump up £170,000 in cash.
No, not class warfare at all that, nothing like it.
