These things are usually done under the guise of economic necessity, to "stimulate growth" or to appease "the market". If people really understood how unfair this all really is and how feather-bedded and protected the rich are the Tories would probably never get elected again - but so far they have got away with it by pretending there is a level playing field.
However, the Tories have recently made it quite clear that if you are rich - you get special treatment. No hint of a pretence of equality here. In the new immigration rules, announced this week, you can't come into the UK if you are poor, but if you are rich we'll now welcome you with open arms. If you have the odd £5 million you can stay here permanently after three years, if you have £10 million it only takes two years.
Apparently, estate agents in London are already getting interest in this cunning ruse from wealthy foreigners. Now we can expect a flood of immigrants, most of who will probably be escaping the dodgy dictatorships where they made their gains. But where will all these people be accommodated? Don't worry. The government's changes to housing benefit rules will ensure that the poor are socially cleansed from inner London, making room for this new influx. Once again, in their historic mission to benefit the rich, and increase inequality and social division, the Tories have triumphed.
