I'm in favor of this. They don't need all that money.

All rich people are arrogant and should be shot. Not only have they plunged us into economic chaos, but they also cause endless poverty and wars through their selfish desire for more money.

They should have their wealth expropriated and given to the poor who need it most.

EDIT: According to Oxfam, the 85 richest people are as wealthy as poorest half of the world - let's see you right wingers defend that LOL. Rich people should be eaten.

We do... taxes.

Or maybe you mean we should take more so that everyone is equal in society. Sounds like communism.

I would rather they go for tax dodgers such as Murdoch who still owes £400 Million plus in business tax then take 40% off anyone earning above £42,300

Why is it that people like Princess Diana and John Lennon get assassinated/die in accidents but ***** like Murdoch don't?

Because the world is unfair. That is also the answer to the OP's question.

What makes you entitled to a single penny of someone else's money?

What is your 'fair share' of what someone else has earned?

this. Yes some people are rich bc they were born into it, many others have earned their money by sheer hard work and dedication. Obviously aid should be given to those who are poor due to circumstance e.g natural disasters etc but just giving all of the riches money to other people is unfair.

Not all rich people are like the bankers in the Wolf of Wall Street, wasting money on hookers and super-yachts to look "cool".

This may be off topic but I am going to clear my stance both 100% assassinations. Well murdoch should be ordered to pay everything back, benefit frauds are forced to pay everything back but there is a difference. Cameron will not ask him to pay tax when Murdoch is virtually kissing the conservatives asses on a daily basis. Most people purchase the sun for page 3, to someone who does not look at politics they would believe every word of the sun because of its unique selling point page 3. Here is the article http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/299543.stm

You leftists are pathetic, always begging for money. Yes they don't need all that money personally and should give some to charity but if you take their money and give it to poor people then they will stop doing the work which they do to get rich or will leave the country and so eventually there will not be the money to handout to you leftist parasites, as well as it affecting the general economy.

They despise it- they wait for welfare and public spending to be cut and redistributed to the people at the top who have more money then sense via tax cuts and corporation taxes, and if it there is not enough money to cut corporation taxes they will throw in the odd sale of a public utensil. People Accuse Corbyn of being from the 1970's but if Cameron could get away with out a major backlash he would stop the living wage and abolish the minimum wage so he could be more like scrooge. Also some of his policies are done for personal gains to his donors or himself, the crackhead who sits to the right of him or Boris Johnson.
