Oleaginous Hain Green with Envy
The Times: PETER HAIN today raises the spectre of making the rich bear more of the burden for reducing carbon emissions by relating green taxes to income.
The Northern Ireland secretary, campaigning to become deputy prime minister under Gordon Brown, also suggested “innovative ways” were needed to stop the super-wealthy “racing away” from those on average incomes.
Hain advocates introducing “progressive” green taxes to hit those on big incomes hardest, rather than slapping levies on flights, petrol and rubbish.
“There is a problem about those right at the top just racing away over the horizon and those on average and below-average incomes staying behind. We need to find a way of addressing that.” What I am saying is just be very careful that we’re not ignoring the need for social justice.
It is good of the oleaginous one to remind us what the call for "green taxes" is really about - not a "levy" to rectify the harm an activity does but another method of socially engineering society in the orange faced twat's vision. Green with envy with taxes maybe?
