Robbing the rich to pay the richer?

There’s an excellent piece over on The Edge of England’s Sword, which reflects my own views on the matter so closely that it’s barely worth adding anything.

The Edge of England’s Sword: Fairness – The New Tory Theme

I’d just like to echo the point about the wife swap couple. I know a woman who lives on a council estate in Britsol. She has worked her entire life to bring up two kids. Next door to her lives a man and woman and their kids. None of them work. All of them are on benefit. They are considerably better off than her. Fair? No, I don’t think so.
