Budget 2009: £3bn raid on top earners' pensions buried in small print - Telegraph.

If those 1% or so on the highest level of earnings, who benefited most from the economic boom that prceded the credit crunch and recession are not going to pay most for it, who is?

There's an incredible poverty of thinking here

And the argument that thyey're worth so much that they'll leave is ridiculous. As I saw it described in one London evening free paper last night - this won't be a brain drain - it will be a vain drain.

They'll come back when they realise just how low the quality of life is away from home if they only leave for money.
