Their report on the living wage.
While the direction of the living wage campaign is ultimately a decision for campaigners themselves we recommend that:
The government funds an independent research unit, be based in a university or in Whitehall, to support further rigorous analysis of the costs and benefits of living wages.
Yes, the usual cuntflappery. Gissa job on the taxpayer’s cash. Zero work, nice pension, better than having to work for a living innit?
As to the rest of the report. They mention only in passing that the low paid currently get charged income tax and NI. For we have a taxation system which reaches down into the party timer on minimum wages income. For that of course they must be killed. But that’s not all:
While under current plans, total tax credit expenditure is set to decline and tax credits will be subsumed into the new Universal Credit from late 201343, high marginal tax rates will continue to face large swaths of households. This means that raising wages among workers in low-income families will generate significant savings for government, in addition to the increased tax revenues.
They positively glory in the idea that the government will be able to nick more money from poor people. Presumably to fund that research body that will look into hte effects of the living wage. Increase the amount stolen froim the poor of our society to pay for academic wibbling by those advocating the theft.
For that we need to hang them, gut and salt the corpses and display them on gibbetts around the country. Seriously, this is cuntitude of the grossest form.

All of you should hang your heads in shame: in the absence of that we should indeed take a righteous and bloody revenge.
How fucking can you argue that the poor should be taxed to provide you with a comfy sinecure?
