Tiny tax on the super-rich would raise £70 billion

Tiny tax on the super-rich would raise £70 billion

A tiny tax on the super-rich would raise £70 billion that could then revitalise health and social care in the UK, according to the Green Party.

This should be an automatic vote-winner for the Greens, whose ambitions for the July 4 general election are so modest that they only hope to get four MPs into Parliament.

But listen to the way Kay Burley tries to make it seem that they want to raise taxes for everybody:

Did you hear it? “So you’re putting taxes up?”

This is exactly what Gary Stevenson has been warning about in his recent video, which This Site discusses here.

The Green policy is about reducing the burden on ordinary people by taxing the asset wealth and income of the super-rich – the top one per cent of earners – by just one per cent – 1/100th – in many cases, and just two per cent in a few more.

That’s a tiny amount for these fatcats.

And look what the Greens would do with it – and are hoping to encourage other MPs to do, depending on who gets elected (this is from a BBC report):

The Green Party has proposed increasing funding for the English NHS by a £30bn annual package by 2030.

The money would be used to raise NHS frontline workers’ salaries, ensure rapid GP access, provide same-day urgent care, and guarantee everyone an NHS dentist.

The Greens proposed £20bn more per year for social care to “ensure dignity for those in need of care and take pressure off the NHS”.

Alongside increased healthcare spending, the Greens have proposed a one-off £20bn capital investment fund to modernise hospital infrastructure and equipment.

The Greens pledged new laws to “fight privatisation” in the NHS, claiming outsourced contracts siphon off £1bn from the health service.

[They] have proposed new legislation to abolish competition within the NHS and limit commercial companies’ roles.

This all seems great to me. I can see no downside to it at all so, if there are no Independent candidates in my constituency with a worthwhile agenda, This Writer expects to vote Green for the first time.
