Quote of the day

"To my mind ... the biggest issue facing the UK today [is] the corruption of reasonably 'fair' market capitalism and our return to the Robber Baron capitalism the late nineteenth century. It’s the vast and growing disparity in wealth. It’s the fact that even though you need over 17 per cent more to join the rich list than last year, the average household’s income hasn’t changed for the best part of a decade. But, don’t worry your pretty little head with all that. Go, rich people!"

When even the Telegraph is publishing articles lamenting growing financial inequality in the UK, and the fact that neither of the two main parties have adequately addressed it during the course of their election campaigns, then you know the Tories have gone too far and need to be stopped.
