He's gone full woke sjw imo. Gone from raging Tory to full on Communist basically. Or as is more likely retired early and has nothing much to fill his days so has become a full time online contrarian. Somewhat surprised, but also gratified, that he subscribes to the "From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs" principle, but repentant sinners etc. It seems to me that the settlement for council workers involves a modest adjustment to pay differentials and, as such, is a marginally fairer approach. However, the thought that higher-paid workers should voluntarily forgo wage increases in pursuit of social objectives is utterly risible. If we want to improve the situation of lower-income households it should be done through a more equitable tax system to fund higher levels of welfare benefits and the removal of several million households from any income tax liability. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
