Today I received an email from our Revered (not) Leader which I reproduce:
|It’s a New Year. And with our economy growing and a strong Conservative majority Government in power, Britain begins it with renewed strength.
For me there are no New Year’s resolutions, just an ongoing resolve to deliver what our party promised in our manifesto. Security – at every stage of your life.
To do this, I need your support.
Over 31 million people will begin the year in work – more than any in our history. And from April, more than half a million working people will be taken out of income tax – and the new National Living Wage will be introduced for everyone over the age of 25.
Meanwhile, millions more will benefit from the new academies, 30 hours of free childcare, rising pensions and extra apprenticeships that we committed to in our manifesto.
And, by building 200,000 Starter Homes, we’ll help even more hardworking people enjoy the security of owning their own home.
As we set out on our journey to build that greater Britain and deliver real security for working people, your support is crucial.
Best wishes, and happy New Year,
By clicking on the link one finds the donation is not to the country but to the Conservative Party. Were the donation intended ‘for the country’ one would be permitted to ask why, especially as we all feel the level of taxation, extracted from us by force and under penalty of imprisonment if we decline, is quite high enough (in any case, on this subject what about the argument for ‘Referism‘, a demand repeated in The Harrogate Agenda – Article 5?). As the requested donation is for the Conservative Party one is forced to ask how donating to the political party currently in power will assist in their governance of our country?
