I think you are being a little politcally naive here. Taxes on old
people's property will come straight out of the next generation's
inheritance, which otherwise might be the only way they were going to
buy a house, or (seeing they are getting quite old now) subsidise their
kids' buying houses. It is always a mistake to let the Tories divide
us by promoting jealousy between sections of the population. The
solution to poor pensions is to demand better pensions, not try to take
them away from those who fought for them 70 years ago! I remember how
the toolmakers in the car industry were reviled for asking for higher
wages than semi-skilled workers, and the net result was that everyone's
wages fell. This sort of thing was the cause of much of the trouble in
the 70s that was blamed on the uinions.
 actually the toolmakers were overtaken by technology, but this does
not change the corrosive effect on the working class movement of
allowing the bosses to create dissension between different groups.
 didn't Willets engineer the rise in tuition fees?
It's amazing what fear can be generated by piling supposition upon
It's also very interesting to see that the electoral bribes regarding
inter alia tuition fees and student loans seem to have been costed ("A
senior Conservative is to urge Theresa May to target the wealth of baby
boomers to prevent their children’s generation being forced to stomach a
15p rise in income tax to cover the spiralling cost of healthcare,
education and welfare").
Perhaps 'the young' will now realise what it is they're being sold -
namely, their own future.
"RSGBTech is meant for everyone", or so the RSGB says. The group is
ensure that the questions are on topic', but the group's own admissions
(a pre-) 'vet', 'known', 'trouble', and 'maker', but not the vetting
policy! None of these are
'moderation' issues and none are mentioned in the RSGB's Guidelines.....
