Irreparable damage has already been done.
'The stock markets are fucked'
How exactly have you come to that conclusion?
Daily Star reader possibly? ;-)
Inheritance tax is stealing in my book
Strangely, I agree with you.
I've said before on here (and actually thought it since I used to ponder on such weighty matters back in the 1980's) that eventually the world will be united with one government and will be essentially communist in its workings.
Ultimately, capitalism will fail. As computers and robots make more and more human labour redundant, there will be an ever decreasing number of ever increasing rich people, and on the other side, an ever increasing number of people becoming poorer and poorer. Unchecked, this system will fail due to civil unrest and a break down of society.
Eventually all human labour will be redundant. In that end stage - actually well before then - there will need to be a mechanism to take wealth off the very few who have it, and distribute it evenly amongst everyone else. Work will be entirely optional, with such marginal extra reward for working that hardly anyone wants to do it. A life of leisure, and never working, will be entirely optional, and in fact what most people choose.
This is imo 100% inevitable. I am talking perhaps 200 hundred - maybe 500 - years from now. We can debate how long it will take. But not the end stage, which is inevitable. Ultimately, machines will be able to do every conceivable task better than humans and no human will need to be employed.
Cannot decide if this is purely purposely insensitive and/or plain idiotic
the question does not need asking, unless you, of course have no regard of empathy, like Kensington council have already shown.
Ah, the undeserving poor again.
Well, that sums it up. You see "everyone" and think "every one individual", whereas I think of an all-in-this-together "everyone" community without vast disparity of wealth.
The money runs out only because some people act self-interestedly, and don't like high taxes. Which takes us back to my point. Have a go at "self-interested" socialist politicians, but Tory politicians espouse and celebrate self-interest so should be beyond criticism when they do as they preach. But that's what makes them worse than vermin.
Everyone all in this together community does not exist so it seems silly to try and a run a country on it.
Shall we march on Whitehall tonight or wait until weekend?

And we've run out of money.
Venezuela has suffered what is expected to be the first in a cascade of defaults on more than $60bn of international bonds after missing several interest payments.
The country with the world's largest oil reserves are eating rats, their pets and zoo animals and wiping their arses on Cherimoya leaves. Nothing to do with socialism.
