    What is the logic behind socialist economics? If we admit that the redistribution of wealth is desirable, we also admit we need wealth in the first place to redistribute, how can we redistribute wealth if we are destroying it by penalizing those who create it by creating jobs and infrastructure through private investment? People invest in the country that is stable and has high returns. Socialism appears to destroy the very thing it aims to create, wealth.

    This might be unfair, to put the burden on the poor, but how can we do anything about it given that it is a global problem, due to globalisation people are free to invest anywhere they want with little difficulty. No changes to UK domestic policy are likely to solve the financial crisis, no changes to UK policy could possibly change the tide in favor of the working poor.

    So two questions.

    Why does a socialist want to stay in the EU? Knowing that the EU provides ample movement for the wealthy instead of paying taxes.

    How will socialism make us more prosperous when it destroys the very thing it is trying to redistribute?

    The only value and worth the working poor have is their labour, the only way to make things fair is to ensure the playing field is level. In other words: less government subsidies for large corporations. Stop subsidising industries with public money- leave it up to the wealthy to spend THEIR money on business.

    Regardless, working poor people have always existed and will continue to exist. Why will they continue to exist? Because, despite socialist propaganda, most of Britain's poor can afford homes, food and 1-2 babby.

    Socialist economics is parasitic by nature: it cannot create wealth, it needs the wealth to be there before it can steal it from you and give it to the dindus.
