What this highlights is a politician not speaking from the heart and rather some poll driven formulaic formula. Any politician who puts society first would call for the end of non dom, case closed. By wiggling around and saying, in effect, “We want to end non dom statuses, but……” a politician is showing their contempt for society and thus civil society. This is vital.
At the end of the day, I say, we are in a hole over Mr. Balls’ crass remarks, in January, of this year, let us put down the shovel, and climb out of the hole.
Labour should adopt your economic policy prescriptions on non doms, not to mention the passport tax, exploring the viability of an exit tax and the whole host of NSDAP inspired work put forth on these pages. That too is, case closed.
Poe’s Law, eh?
