    I still fail to see why you would rather benefits be taken away than wages being risen.

    As it is the wealthy pay a disproportional share in tax for less back in return, a millionaire tax is straight from the books of those individuals who subscribe to the philosophy of envy, which is left-wing politics.
    No doubt that those who criticise the left for being jealous of rich people also criticise the left for being 'champagne socialists' or 'metropolitan liberal elites'.

    What's baffling is that you fail to see the irony.

    As the left are all apparently wealthy, out of touch metropolitan liberal elites, then supporting taxing the wealthy highly (which includes themselves) makes them incredibly principled, not jealous...

    If a poor person complains about inequality you label them jealous, if a rich person complains you label them as a hypocrite...
