Sometimes the news is just so insane it doesn’t even require my commentary.
The Daily Mail reports:
- Hardline policy will hit thousands of ordinary small business holders
- Number of people targeted for tax checks to go from 5,000 to 150,000
- Special investigators will target people hiding money offshore
- Policies are a bid to placate angry members of Lib Dem grassroots
The moves, unveiled at the Liberal Democrat conference, were designed to guarantee Mr Clegg’s popularity with mutinous grassroots members, but were described by critics as ‘bully boy tactics’.
Middle-class families could be forced to undergo lie detector tests as part of a major crackdown on tax avoidance being spearheaded by Nick Clegg.
Tens of thousands will face intrusive new tax investigations under the plans unveiled by the Deputy Prime Minister yesterday.
As part of a two-pronged attack on the better-off, millions more will face cuts in benefits, such as winter fuel payments, child benefit and free bus passes.
Yeah, you read that right.
The ultimate plan is to have all businesses send paychecks to the government, which will take what they please, then the government will hand the remainder back to the serfs. Any serf making more than he should is subject to constant invasive audits and lie detector tests.
The UK went off the deep end awhile ago, but this is just so insane I have trouble comprehending how the people there haven’t had an open revolt yet.
