Britain's hard-working rich people tell others to go green, and get on their bikes

At yesterday's Conservative party conference, shadow chancellor George Osborne pledged to cut all taxes for Britain's hard-pressed rich people. 19 million hard-working rich people in Britain who struggled to buy their own homes, will now no longer pay taxes at all.

In a raft of measures designed to boost Britain's economy, Osborne also announced that rich people:

  • Will be exempt from red traffic lights
  • Will be allowed to park where they like
  • Won't have to pay for things

The Tories are prepared and convinced of winning a general election for the first time since 1802. "The next Conservative government will raise the inheritance tax threshold to 1 million. That means we will take the family home out of inheritance tax."

At last, the Tories speak sense, and because they are green too, there is no shame in voting for them. In the past, Tory governments have allowed rich people to:

  • Tell others what to do
  • Choose their neighbours

If YOU think you'll be better off under the Tories, remember, you don't have to tell anyone you've voted for them. That's how it's always worked.

It's all true.
