So the Grauniad discovers that rich people fund political issues. (Quick: Alert The Media! Oh, wait…)
Of course, being the Lefty bastards that they are, the Grauniad deplores that fact that most billionaires are in fact quite conservative — e.g. rich people don’t want their heirs to pay estate taxes; quelle surprise! Where the liberal rag indulges in its usual mendacity is that it classifies opposition to measures like the estate tax as “unpopular” — which is true if you’re a socialist like they all are, but in fact the estate tax is enormously unpopular in the United States, as poll after poll will tell you (if you do the research, which the Grauniad didn’t).
In fact, the estate tax is unpopular even amongst Americans who will likely never have to pay the tax themselves, which no doubt horrifies the Left because a.) those stupid peasants haven’t swallowed all the Left’s lies about the Eeeevil Rich and b.) said peasants think that the estate tax is wrong in that it’s simply coercive wealth redistribution.
Maybe the estate tax is generally popular in Britain — I wouldn’t be surprised — but all the numbers they quote come from the United States, so that’s the usual Lefty misrepresenting of data to reflect their dogma rather than actual, you know, reality. There’s only one solution to these socialist bastards and their lying:
I think this tweet thread from last year says it all, really:
My standard response when a younger child does the “Trick or Treat?” thing to me is to say:
“I don’t know; which one do you want me to do to you?”
If I say it loudly enough, it’s generally enough to have a Helicopter Parent come steaming up to the door and snatch Their Precious Child away from me. Then I throw gumballs at their retreating figures.
That’s the in-house slang used by real estate agents (realtors) to describe residential real estate (as opposed to commercial). So we have this, from Britishland:
Centre Point joins growing list of empty luxury skyscrapers as developer gives up trying to sell apartments for up to £55m each after receiving too many ‘detached from reality’ low offers
I would suggest that someone trying to sell a simple apartment for £55 million is the one who’s detached from reality, but then again I’m no market expert. Even Mr. Free Market, who is, has expressed disbelief at some of the prices being asked for places that are, in a word, overpriced even for one of the most expensive cities in the world.
Judging from some of the pictures of said places, they could best be described as “not memorable”.
(Me, I’d call them pig-ugly but that’s because I detest modern architecture and decoration.)
