Quote: In an article in The Sun, Mr Osborne said: "We are still all in this together. Everyone must make a contribution to dealing with our debts, from the richest in our society to those living a life on benefits

By use of the word 'still', is he suggesting that once all 'this' is over, those with the intention and the means can go back to tax dodging? Sounds like it...

"Going back to tax dodging" gives the impression that it's not currently happening!

Tightening their belts (literally) means eating at the Dorchester rather than The Ivy. Mine is shopping at Lidl or Morrisons!

Surely it's every man's duty to avoid paying tax?

I think Mr Osborne has been watching far too much Blackadder ! for my liking.

I love it when the wealthy say things like "we're all in this together"

LOL - yes, then when the 15' barge pole's back in place, it's "let the bast*rds eat cake!"

Even for you jondf, that is stretching a quote to make a political point.

to read into that sentence that he intends to let them revert to old ways in the future is really stretching an analysis of the word 'still'.

The quote from Nadine Dorries still stands. "Two posh boys who dont know the price of a pint of milk"

However I still say that the benefits system should and must be cut. It is as unfare a system that pays someone doing nothing on benefits more than someone in a full time job. IE - you have to earn 36k a year to be equal to a person on the new benefits of 26K a year. This is just as wrong as those who 'work' the tax system.
