Yes, folks. That's right. We need more and more taxes as we fall further into this depression, to pay for more and more useless lazy parasites to do more and more non-jobs and to get fatter and fatter pensions from these non-jobs, and to retire earlier and earlier, due to 'stress', otherwise the economy might falter.
No doubt if we pay the increasing amounts of unemployed people to dig holes and then fill them in again, we will get even richer. Because if we leave money in the hands of the people who earn it, they'll only go and waste it on stuff they shouldn't want, services they mistakenly think they need, and investments which will only benefit themselves, the selfish prigs.
Whereas taxes handed over to Mandy will only be spent on stuff they really need (such as lift attendants in the House of Commons), services they really need (such as the British Potato Council), and investments the entire nation benefits from (such as International Aid recently sent to Yemen, which somehow finds it impossible to get assistance from all those other poor Arab nations in the Gulf such as Saudi Arabia and the UAE, and the proceeds of which will all no doubt find their way into the hands of the worthy and not into the hands of local tyrants).
Welcome to the Fantasy World of Lord Rio of Hinduja, Prince of the Nation, a.k.a. 'Lord Mandy of Boys', a man who was once upset when he couldn't get the EU to give him a Maserati for his official Brussels runabout. Yes, this would have been an 'investment' in his personal happiness. And what greater aspiration should taxpayers have for their lives, than to support their tax-eating masters in such happiness?
They really are not worth his time and his dignity. But he shall indulge them by allowing them to pay for his extravagant lifestyle, nevertheless. It gives the proles something to aspire to.
