Monty Python: Conservatives vs Leftards

Many leading Conservatives when they’re in top form seem to have a knack for sneaking Monty Python quotes into their speeches.

Leftards on the other hand seem to be intent on making the people of the world feel as though they’re living in a Monty Python sketch, no matter what sort of form they’re on……….

(OK, maybe things ain’t quite this bad yet, but give it time…)

What became of Gordon Brown’s infamous Stealth Taxes?

This is the random question that just popped into my head a few minutes ago.
I’ve seen plenty of mention of them in the past, such as at this link I like to keep handy: http://myweb.tiscali.co.uk/garbagegate/item2/stealth.htm

I suppose I’d be right in guessing that unlike Gordon Brown, a large chunk of them haven’t disappeared yet and are still sneaking extra money out of our pockets into the government piggy bank, in addition to the “super star” taxes that get all the main attention, e.g. Income Tax, National Insurance, Fuel Tax, Road Tax, etc.

Am I right?
