Do you really want to know Derek ? We don't know where the money will come from, as apart from Farage, none of the other leaders have given any clear indication. Just pointing fingers back and forth.
One thing for sure, is it is going to come from somewhere if we are going to swim rather than sink. That is why this election has to be considered very seriously, as we cannot just think about ourselves and how hard things have been for us as individuals, we have to think 'nation' and the best option for dragging us out of the pit. Unfortunately, there are so many other under issues surrounding every main issue, we don't seem to be able to break through.
So far as the wealthy are concerned, we will always have those who are mega rich , but is it assets or cash in the bank. Probably assets and when we now have multi billion dollar companies, that own about another 50 companies under their umbrella, it goes without saying. Personally, I cannot give a monkeys about the mega rich, and wouldn't want any of it. Neither would I have wanted any of the slave traders money but unfortunately, we all live off the backs of such things. So we do benefit from the mega rich.
Oxfam's findings I agree with being due to bad economics, but when so few with so much wisdom are able to xfer their money, cash in their shares, re-invest at a lower price to build and accrue more and more etc around the world in a matter of minutes, due to the wonderful ability of trading on the internet for example, it's a pretty tricky problem to solve, I would have thought.
I still think the massive increase in salaries for qualified people in the first decade of this century has much to answer for, whilst the minimum wage kept the low paid low and reduced pay in many other jobs, when re-defined under the 'job-evaluation' scheme.
Who really knows ? That's just my thoughts, someone else will have a different point of view. Can't see anything changing much in the next Parliament, whichever party gets in i.e. apart from SNP. They will kill us, and we'll all be the nasty English and they will watch us sink whilst wearing a smug smile.
