TaxPayers’ Alliance: opponents of tax cuts suffer from “sexual jealousy”

A new report from the TaxPayers’ Alliance and Institute of Directors claims that those disagree with them are suffering from “sexual jealousy”. The publication makes the case for an extension of austerity to the year 2020, followed by tax cuts for the rich.

But the report 417-page tome, edited by City AM editor Allister Heath (pictured above with sexy ladies), drifts off into bonkers evolutionary psychology by page 91:

“It was still the same in early agricultural societies: the man with the most corn or cattle had the most wives or concubines. And it is still true today … the man with the most money still gets more sexual opportunities than the man with the least money”

Apparently, the liberal intelligentisa object to large tax cuts because they can no longer “flirt with the best women”. We are not making this up.

“So no wonder we dislike inequality. No wonder we want tax to take that money off a Vanderbilt before he grabs all the best women.”

Pursuing the likes of TPA director Matthew Elliott evidently doesn’t leave much time to do any work: just one of their 19 commissioners is female.

    Does that mean all the leading female bankers, company directors and right wing politicians are gay? Or are the writers simply misogynistic as well as simply barking mad.

    Mind you if you are as handsome as this guy I can’t see a problem.But remember so many Tory Ministers had Trophy Wives for PR purposes who disappeared when the Ministers were sacked or went into Opposition. Then we found out about the SPADS.

    Yet we’re so often regaled by our wonderful 4th Estate with moral tales of the rampant and immoral sexual excesses of the poor or working class.

    Anyway, I always thought women were happy to sacrifice all that money if their man were well-endowed enough elsewhere. Perhaps that means Mr Heath is in fact envious himself of other men’s massive endowments, and the sexual opportunities they afford?

    What an utter, utter cock.

    “The man with the most money still gets more sexual opportunities than the man with the least money”

    Why is it that men who say things like that so often have wives whose swarthy yoga/tennis coaches give off a certain air of… ‘accomplishment’.

    The theory is confusing. Mr. Heath in the picture is surrounded by women but wearing a suit which plainly doesn’t fit him. Is he affluent or not?

    The TPA report seems littered with bizarre assertions, although not all as “sexy time” as this one. Take for example this statement (in written and video form) by Matthew “Mr Lover Lover Man” Sinclair : “What is the real Basic Rate? It isn’t 20 per cent. That is just Income Tax. You also pay Employees’ National Insurance of 12 per cent and Employers’ National Insurance of 13.8 per cent, taken out before the money even reaches your payslip” – er, except employees don’t pay “Employers National Insurance”. That’s why it’s called “Employers National Insurance” – because it is paid by employers. You’d think a group of “tax experts” might have spotted that, the clue being in the name. When Employers NI is cut, they don’t generally, pass the cut on to employees.
    Inside the report, the TPA suggest they would like Employers NI cut and the money replaced by an increase on VAT – so they want less tax for Employers, more for people who buy stuff.

    The bloke looks like a complete drip. No wonder he feels the need to attempt to lord it over others, and, as stated, that suit does not fit him. The shirt is also terrible, especially combined with that tie. If only these jumped up tools would pool their precious resources, buy an island and bugger off there for good.

    I’m sure a Moss Bros could open on the island for all of Mr.Heath’s atrociously poor fashion needs.

    In other words .. now that the educated have enlightened themselves to the point that they see where the greed and hypocrisy are going, it all amounts to envy at not getting some flange.

    The rich, while ignorant, greedy, selfish and hedonistic are getting some – while the poor, which now encompasses the less well paid academia, are all just jealous and should shut up.

    I wonder if “trickle down” economics was also meant to cover the dribblings of the fuck-puddle from a millionaires mattress?

    What a pile of utter, utter shite.

    These fuckers are *conpletely* mental.

    So Nineteenth Century Social Darwinism is indeed part of their creed. How long until they start to suggest the poor have too many babies?

    I don’t understand how you get to be editor even of a free paper as rubbish as City AM when you have such a bizarre and illogical closed mind and such a hateful view of your fellow man. and City workers still struggle to understand why everyone doesn’t like them and thinks that they’re all crooks responsible for the financial crisis.

    Funny that, I seem to remember getting most ‘sexual opportunities’ when I was a student and a year or two after that (some of which was spent unemployed).

    I wouldn’t count these as the most wealthy spells in my life.

    “I’m pretty frightened that if my wealth is taken away, women will not want to sleep with me. I do not have anything else going for me.”

    Jesus! Ichabod Crane in his dad’s suit – I doubt there’s enough money in the world to get Allister Heath laid.

    Well City AM has always been a propaganda sheet, and Private Eye revealed that Heath’s father and sister are involved with the so-called/self-styled Tax Payers’ Alliance.
