Thanks to Martin Hillman and David Ellis [Letter Oct 31] for reminding me of the duplicity of the Lib-Dems. I had quite forgotten. But I find their other generalisation mystifying.
Could they provide supporting evidence that the three main political parties are “at war” with 99%of the population?
That means their own supporters presumably.
Further, if virtually all of the population is suffering as a result of austerity measures that presumablyincludes all those in the top income levels too.
So these high earners deserve our sympathy. On the question of balance in taxation I think they will find that the average taxpayer works for almost half the year for the Government who then re-distributes this contribution for the whole community. It is called wealth re-distribution. Reasonable balance?
The political stance of the writers is obscure but I sense the “Dictatorship of the Proletariat” lurking intheir thoughts.
If so they might seek their destiny in North Korea or North Vietnam. Personally I prefer our way of doing things.
