    Honestly the entire surcharge for tax paying individuals is a complete joke regardless of what job they do. Especially as it's generally calculated as a net benefit in terms cost V collected.

    In other news, the Chinese government are using the coronavirus as cover to try to severely curtail the rights of Hong Kong and essentially dismantle the one country 2 systems they agreed to when going Kong was originally transferred.

    This was a deal brokered through the UN and their actions show China's intention is to completely dismantle an semblance of independence in Hong Kong.

    Yep, and so we can expect the demonstrations to start again and I am sure then that the authorities will crack down on them under the guise that social distancing measures etc.

    For anyone who wants a point of comparison and to again show up what a bunch of hypocrites the right wing are, here is Obama attending a republican house question session in an environment filled entirely with his political opponents. He made a point of taking himself out of the echo chamber and directly interacting with his critics. Now look at trump.

    The right wing has made a point if distorting their supporters perception of reality to such a degree they no longer know truth from fiction. Trump has never left the echo chamber and lashes out at any sort of opposition but the likes of Steve-o looks at this and sees trump as the better option.

    So Bojo is backing Cummings. This is setting up to be one of the big battles and the sheers lying and hypocrisy around it shows Cummings has way more power and influence over the highest up Tories. I could hope for a Tory MP revolt to indicate they still have some semblance of integrity.
