Private equity firms and businesses deemed to be “asset strippers” will face higher taxes under a Labour government, Ed Miliband will warn tomorrow.
And how will you know that, Ed? Will it be if someone rats them out? Will you have inspectors who go round analysing businesses to identify
companies with the “wrong values” who do not create jobs, invest in companies or train their staff
So the options are:
- Employers will be at the whim of employees who may take every rejection of jazzed-up training as an excuse to try and get their employer the higher tax level;
- Labour will employ thousands of inspectors to make sure that every business meets a checklist of bollocks criteria that will do nothing to prevent "bad" behaviour, but cost the taxpayer billions;
- Ed is blowing smoke up the party faithful's collective ringmeat.
And, of course, there is the tiny but hardly irrelevant matter that asset stripping is, in fact, wealth creation. You fucking idiot.
Oh, I can't wait until these cunts get back into power. Happy days.
