May still desperately clinging on to power

Obviously. But you cannot make blanket statements about what makes rich income. I am sure if I lived in Whitehaven or barrow, 70K would be a fortune.But we cannot all live in Whitehaven...

Surely that would depend on the area, and a presumption that you live on your own? £70k would be a very comfortable salary, even in London.


If you have a mortgage of 2K a month ( average in London), a car loan, ( normal), and two kids ( average), you would be a JAM in London.

Even the average salary in London is only £48K. So you're arguing that most people working in London are in poverty?

I wouldn't consider anybody on 70g "rich" but I would certainly consider them pretty well off up here

Yep. And I certainly would expect them to be able to shoulder a bigger burden of the tax bill than someone on the national average wage.

He also uses the dead bodies of the poor to make jelly which he then uses as a sexual lubricant

The swine!

This idea that Osborne would countenance contact with the common man, dead or otherwise, is ludicrous.

Can you imagine Osborne's sweaty, shiny sex-face, btw? Just thought I'd throw that in.

The Conservatives promised stability at the last election and said Labour would bring chaos...

Funny how things pan out.
