Medals Explaining Tax and Welfare Spending

You all know what a snoozefest I found the Olympics but here is a gem of a tweet I thought I would share with you as it explains the silliness of the taxation and welfare distribution system.

Surprisingly simple from a tax accountant.  We don’t take a percentage of medals and give them to non-medal winners so why do we do it to people who are leaders in business or hard workers?

    Why do we do it? Because politicians like to play one sector of society against the other, it’s called class warfare, this is especially popular with our socialist mates. Anyone remember “pay their fair share”, fucktards the lot of them. But the leading reason is they buy votes by stealing others wealth, it’s all pretty simple really.

    Taxing the rich pricks to death is the social path to economic nirvana. Wait until 2014 elections Tories! You will never know what is going to hit you from Finance Minister and Deputy PM Russel Museli Norman……

    Because that way, having a portion of a medal will entice and encourage the non-medal winners to aim higher and try harder next Olympics so they might get a medal of their own. That’s how it’s supposed to work anyhow…
