Silly Abi Wilkinson is a journalist who writes for the UK’s lefty newspaper the Guardian.
In her latest epistle she suggests that Inheritance Tax should be levied at 100% and all the proceeds used too fund the welfare state.
Immediately, her column received numerous replies that this was a stupid idea and most people regard her idea as bonkers.
Ordinary people want to pass on something to their progeny as they carry on ones genes, and most people work hard, and save money in order to do so. And they wouldn’t want their efforts to be wasted on a bunch of feckless wasters instead of their own children.
Why on earth is it that these woolly headed lefties are so massively out of touch with ordinary people.
Of course, there is also one further problem with idiot Wilkinsons idea. If people knew the state would take by force any savings they would simply not save anything. Productivity would plummet. This happens everywhere where socialism or tax farming is implemented. So the end result is that there would actually be less money for the welfare state anyway.
Having said that, like all lefty losers she doesn’t want this to apply to her which is typical behaviour from socialists.
