Andy Burnham, the slimy little creep that tried so desperately to convince us that identity cards are a spiffing thing, has opened his mouth again:
The tax system should reward married couples, a cabinet minister has said.
Chief Secretary to the Treasury Andy Burnham told the Daily Telegraph: “It’s not wrong that the tax system should recognise commitment and marriage.”
No, it should not. People’s private lives and marriage status is none of the government’s damned business. It is not up to government to encourage or otherwise promote one type of lifestyle over another – because it is none of their fucking business.
He did not advocate specific changes to the tax system, but said there was a “moral case” for using tax to promote the traditional family unit.
No, there is not. Marriage has nothing to do with morality – it is a voluntary contract between two people and it is none of the government’s fucking business. Did I say that already? Oh, yes, so I did. One day the odious fuckers will realise that our lives are none of their fucking business and will learn to keep their noses out. Unfortunately, the only way of persuading them is likely to be with a length of rope and a lamp post.
Mr Burnham, who is married with three children, said: “I don’t seek to preach to anybody…”
Then shut the fuck up. Ah, but of course, he is a politician, and this is a concept he will be unable to comprehend. Time for the rope and lamp post treatment methinks. One has to ask, though, what did the rope do to deserve this?
