But he said that while he wanted greater equality and redistribution, that did not mean penalising the super-rich.
"My view is that the greatest concern we should have is not the gap between David Beckham’s wages on the one hand, and someone on benefits on the other," he said.
"I don’t think making the top 1% richest poorer makes the 10% poorest richer."
Comment: My response to David Cameron on Equality stakes:
AND VINDICATING EVIDENCE FROM SIR BILL MORRIS – ABOUT TO BE LORD MORRIS – POACHER TURNED GAMEKEEPER MAY BE RECIPROCATING GRATITUDE (NOT FAVOURS) FOR PEERAGE TO THE HOUSE OF LORDS?
Although I have respect for Sir Bill – it goes to show how people who champion the causes of the under-paid, under-valued and oppressed workers – suddenly change their allegiance once in ‘August company’?
Although his view supports my e-mail a day earlier to David Cameron, Compassionate Conservative Leader, about the hypocrisy in the unions like Unison which has acquired a monolithic stature – too big, cumbersome, bureaucratic and barriered to accord equality of access, information or treatment to its members who pay for its support through their noses – to be fair to the struggling masses – I had to call a spade a spade irrespective of his Black & Minority Ethnic Role Model Status. Allthemore he ought to be exemplary.
I rest my case.
