It truly is glorious to be rich… You get google-eyed bastards like John Hutton licking your arse:
The UK should “celebrate the fact that people can be enormously successful in this country”, Business Secretary John Hutton is expected to say.
In a speech he will argue that “more millionaires” are needed, calling freedom to get rich “a good thing”.
The goal that “no-one should be left behind” should not mean no-one can get ahead, he will say.
His Progress lecture comes on the eve of the Budget and as ministers announce plans for an “enterprise academy”.
It will be seen as an attempt to woo the business community, whose support is increasingly being fought over by Labour and the Conservatives. […]
Firms are putting pressure on the government to reduce the rate of corporation tax and simplify the system.
But trade unions argue that this would shift the taxation burden from the “super-rich” to ordinary earners.
