What the age do you think I am exactly? 20? There is literally no possibility a 75 year old has even twice my life experience, just by the math. And he has less relevant life experience to finding a job in the 21st century.
People know about different things. If he wants to talk about running a business for 40 years, that he knows.
If he wants to talk about finding a job in 2018, not 1978 - he doesn’t know much. It would be like him lecturing you about the evils of computer games. He would have no idea what he was talking about.
Does he have that vision? Can you describe what specific policies he’s got that you disagree, that involve a lot of tax? As far as I can tell, he doesn’t have any policies particularly far to the left of what you’ve described.
Dreamlord, where do you think most of our welfare-related taxes go? Because it’s actually to people on pensions, which includes your 75-year-old example. You say it’s wrong that a higher-earning family gets child support. Why is not wrong that your 75-year-old draws a state pension?
The vast majority of the welfare budget goes on pensions and elder-related care.
If you think you can build a better welfare system without increasing taxes from where they are now, I’d love to hear how. Because it doesn’t seem like the maths could possibly work, not with an aging population.
If you’re really concerned about tax being misspent, you might start by looking at Trident, aircraft carriers and F35s (an extremely expensive and seemingly ineffective aircraft).
