The Labour Party has announced plans to implement a new tax specifically targeting white men. Rachel Reeves, Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer, defended the proposal, stating, “It’s only fair that white, privileged men pay their way!”

The proposed tax, dubbed the “Equality Levy” by Labour, aims to address perceived disparities in society by levying additional charges on individuals based solely on their gender and ethnicity. Supporters of the measure argue that it’s a necessary step towards achieving social justice and equality.

“It’s high time that those who have benefited from centuries of systemic privilege start contributing their fair share,” proclaimed Reeves, as she unveiled the party’s plans amidst a flurry of controversy.

Critics, however, have blasted the proposal as discriminatory and divisive, arguing that taxation based on immutable characteristics goes against the principles of fairness and equality under the law.

“This is political correctness run amok,” declared one outraged commentator. “Taxation should be based on income and wealth, not race or gender!”

As the debate rages on, Labour remains steadfast in its commitment to the new tax, insisting that it’s a necessary step towards addressing systemic inequalities in society.

But with critics decrying the proposal as a misguided attempt at virtue signalling, and with many questioning its legality and practicality, it remains to be seen whether Labour’s “Equality Levy” will ever see the light of day or if it will go down in history as yet another ill-conceived scheme from the world of woke politics.
