This is the reality of raising taxes

On first inspection is seems reasonable to raise taxes on corporations, because Robin Hood will be robbing the rich to redistribute to the poor.

However, as one of Guido Fawkes' blog posts today shows, the rich simply up sticks and leave for other more tax-friendly shores, stiffing the working poor who can't relocate for the (bigger) tax bill.

With feeling: there is no Robin Hood, Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, or a political party that really does have the interests of the poor working man at heart. You cannot have something without paying for it. There is no such thing as a benevolent all-knowing government who can actually steer the economy without crashing into the rocks. Marx was a fraud and everyone who follows his teachings is too.

There. To all the progressive social democrats out there, choking on their nice glass of wine and reaching for the security of their Guardian instead of this fascist's drivel -- how do you like those apples? But really, when you've recovered a bit, just have a think about it. A proper one, not that one you usually have where you merely confirm to yourself that everything you have been told by others is true.
