Tories Warn That Labour Would "Clobber The Rich".
Chris Grayling, the Justice Secretary who fiddled his expenses for £127,000, has warned the electorate in Britain that a Labour government would "clobber the rich". This would be a disaster, according to this well known crook, because rich people are the nation's "wealth creators". "We are on side of people who create jobs," he told the BBC "people who work hard and want to get on in life." A stranger to any kind of work, hard or otherwise, this Tory snake oil salesman then went on to claim that rich people would simply leave the country. After three years of clobbering the poor to finance their own luxury lifestyle this self-serving drivel is the only defence that the Tories can put up. The rich in this country are not "job creators" because, after three years of having everything their own way and getting ever richer, we are hardly awash with jobs. Nor are they "wealth creators", choosing instead to be wealth hoarders and to stash their cash in offshore bank accounts in order to avoid paying tax. Nothing could illustrate better what the Tory party is all about, peddling the lie that rich people are rich because they work hard whereas many simply inherited their money and that poor people are poor because they deserve it. Clobber the rich? After three years of this unwarranted and deeply unfair attack on the vast majority in this country on behalf of a privileged few I'd squeeze them until the pips squeak.
