David Cameron - 'man of the people' - well .... maybe ...

Cameron outlines new 'equality'

David Cameron has outlined his desire for equality and redistributive taxation to show how he plans to shake up the Tory party.

.... Mr Cameron ... said that while he wanted greater equality and redistribution, that did not mean penalising the super-rich.

"My view is that the greatest concern we should have is not the gap between David Beckham's wages on the one hand, and someone on benefits on the other," he said.

"I don't think making the top 1% richest poorer makes the 10% poorest richer."

[try saying that quickly without stumbling!]

".... Cameron also confessed to liking the music of socialist protest singer Billy Bragg.

He also revealed that Kirsty MacColl's version of Bragg's A New England almost made it on to his list of eight favourite records for his recent appearance on BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs.

Defending his choice, he added: "The idea that you can't like the music of people who don't agree with you politically would kind of limit your musical choices a bit." ....

[ It sure would!]

Cameron sure is a 'man of the people' ..... isn't he ......?

I could say that it is easy to listen to Billy Bragg and enjoy his music while you are lounging in your expensive student 'digs' without a care in your enclosed little World. However, it's a bit different when Bragg's lyrics actually validate your own experiences.

But that would be too cynical .... wouldn't it ....?
