Robin Hood Tax?

Labour's Shadow Chancellor has said that if they were to win the next General Election, they would introduce the Robin Hood Tax.

But as Oliver Cooper on Twitter pointed out:

"Robin Hood took money from the government to give to the people.
Robin Hood Tax would take from the people to give to the government."

Never a truer word said.

Another problem, I find is, why would someone who's working every hours God sends them, and is still struggling, why would they want to give more of their hard earned money to only get it back at a smaller rate?

How does that make sense? How is that fair?

Surely trying to sort out low wages is better than upping taxes? Apparently not.
