Griff Rhys Jones To 'probably' Quit Uk Over Labour Mansion Tax -- Merged

Recommended Posts

Comedian and TV presenter Griff Rhys Jones will “probably” move abroad and buy a “massive palace” if Labour wins the next general election, he has said.[/size]

Perhaps the best reason I've heard yet for a Mansion Tax! :D

He would be probably best advised to avoid France.

Abroad?

Where exactly? Probably not the US...as their property taxes are higher than the proposed mansion tax (except in flyover country)

Probably not Dubai, as the air-con bills are higher than the mansion tax.

So where u goin old griffy boy?...Switzerland with phil collins and his train sets?

I must admit, I never anticipated voting labour...but if it gets rid of him AND glenda jackson, I may just have to do it.

Yet another luvvie who wants money from the money tree for all sorts of projects he supports, but as soon as he has to put a hand in his own pocket, it's sooooooo unfaaaaaiiirrrrrrr.

Shame - I had thought he had a brain.

Any excuse......so what anyway, people move money about all the time to save on tax...it is called tax avoidance, why people have bought mansions here to avoid tax from elsewhere....easy come easy go.

Ah, a luvvie and his temper tantrum. I bet he normally voted Labour as well. Can't have them using his money, only other (little) peoples money will do to implement the socialist ideal. Bless.

Incentivising people to leave is the point.

Other people are commuting for miles, staying away from their families, or living in hovels,

just to get access to the London job-market.

So if you think that living in London isn't worth a few thousand quid a year, then simply ****** off.

I wouldn't be surprised if he has cost him self more that the mansion tax with this statement.

If I heard he was doing something locally I may have gone to see him. I am less inclined now.

To be honest the article was probably made up based on complete fiction or an offhand comment made taken completely out of context.

The media is a complete sham. Believe what the gossipy rags tell you at your peril. They only write what they think people want to read. They are only in it for the money. Journalistic integrity doesn't seem to exist.

Incentivising property prices to be lower should be the point!

Perhaps, but the luvvies are deserting Labour in droves. Just like the rest of us, they realize they have been deceived.

No matter how crap you think the media is, the evidence is plain to see

As I understand it. You imply that a labour supporter who becomes offended by a policy that effects him personally, hypoctically takes a Tory point of view condems himself as a hypocrit. Do we conclude then he is ultimately slimy. But nature or choice? Lets not forget that GRJ comes from an Oxbridge background

If Labour win how many people seriously think the mansion tax would be implemented without loopholes?

They already have, it involves politicians 2nd homes being exempt.

If anyone in the Labour Party had an ounce of common sense all theyd have done is created a few new bands for the council tax.

Nasty selfish money grubbing man.

I'm sure most of his equity will have been created by the community via local improvements and community monetary policy.
