Tax Justice Insists You Be Poorer

An interesting little bit:

So as far as I’m
concerned the de-growth agenda must be focused on reducing the hugely polluting
lifestyles of the richest people on the planet, let’s say the top 10%, at the same time
allowing for growth of health and education services, all the other services that can
rapidly improve the wellbeing of the remaining 90% of the people. At its roots this
should be an agenda for redistributing wealth and power, for reducing the
conspicuous consumption of the elites and recognising that in a world of finite
resources, we can only live in peace if we share resources more fairly, and don’t
perpetuate an economic system which distributes resources upwards into the
pockets of a very tiny minority who mainly extract wealth rather than create wealth.”

The top 10% of the global income distribution starts at – PPP adjusted – £13,000 a year. Which, at the current minimum wage of £8.91 an hour is 1450 or so hours a year. 27 hours a week.

John Christensen is insisting that people who work part-time on the British minimum wage are over-consuming and must be subject to de-growth.

John Christensen can go fuck himself.

  1. I’m sure Murphy, as a Christian, will be able to explain to his friend John the meaning of verse 7.16 in the Gospel of Matthew and how Murphy himself observes and lives the principles behind the verse.

    Ye shall know them by their fruits.
    Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

  2. de-growth (apart from being a daft phrase) is a euphemism for driving everyone back into poverty. With the likes of him and Spud still in charge, cos someone has to be. He’s a nasty cunt and his ideas are just as nasty.

  3. and don’t
    perpetuate an economic system which distributes resources upwards into the
    pockets of a very tiny minority who mainly extract wealth rather than create wealth.”

    The commissars that will be extracting wealth from others – for the good of society, of course – are exempt from this.

  4. How can these people not see that they’re full on advocated for fascism?

    I feel like I’m taking crazy pills!

  5. “Let me explain to you how this works. You see, the corporations finance Team America. And then Team America goes out, and the corporations sit there in their… In their corporation buildings, and, and, and see that, they’re all corporation-y, and they make money. Mhm.”

  6. @ Witchie @Tim You’ll love this joke…

    A 7-year-old boy is sitting on the porch with his grandfather, who’s drinking a beer.

    “Grandpa, can I have a sip of your beer?”

    The grandfather asks, “Well, does your dick touch your asshole?”

    “No.”

    “Well then, you can’t have a sip of my beer.”

    The next day, they’re on the porch again, and the grandfather is smoking a cigar.

    “Grandpa, can I have a puff of your cigar?”

    “Does your dick touch your asshole?”

    “No.”

    “Well then, you can’t have a puff of my cigar.”

    The next day, the boy is on the porch eating some chocolate chip cookies. His grandfather steps onto the porch and asks, “Hey kid, can I have one of your cookies?”

    “Does your dick touch your asshole?”

    “Yessir.”

    “Well then, go fuck yourself. Grandma made these for me.”

  7. It may well come down to s a violent showdown with Marxist eco-freaks. I’m not buying any 20 grand eco-shite boiler or giving up my wheels so scum like Murphy or Bogus Blojob Johnson any other eco-filth can practice their crazy theories.

  8. This man’s writing must be broadcast to everyone. All of the UK needs to read it and understand what these people are. Labour will then have the choice of disavowing them or going extinct.

  9. Perhaps Murphy is arguing for a reduction in his divorce settlement – sorry I mean an increase as wife no 2 earns more than he does – since his (?ex-)wife is well into the top 10% globally.
