    So basically the top earners pay half of what they earn in tax. They also probably have private health care for their family and send their kids to private school. So as well as putting a fair old whack into the system each year they also do not use public services.

    But you know what they should be shot the greedy selfish bastards.

    Labour did nothing about zero hours when they were in power and they employed ATOS to do medical assessments. They are as nasty as the party they and their supporters call nasty.

    really?

    my point is that we should be looking to invest in education, health and transport.
    We should be funding welfare as the need arises.
    The starting point of discussion about welfare shouldnt be that those that are claiming welfare are lazy and feckless, which is what the Tory rhetoric and actions in office in my lifetime have pointed to.

    I can name several that are the same.

    How many can you name that are lower?

    I'll start with dividend tax which has a top rate of 38.1%

    Care to name more that are lower

    Which is not what anyone has been stating in this thread.

    Plenty have been labelling all Tories as ****s and/or selfish ****s though.

    But that's fine isn't it.

    I never said the high earners were greedy selfish bastards.
    I said the Tories were.
    I never said that anyone should be shot.
    In fact I made no mention in my original post about high earners at all. It was about the Tory attitude to the poor.

    I only mentioned high earners because it was claimed they pay more than 50% in tax because they dont and I thought that needed correcting
