Marilyn Manson, the oddball rocker and spiritual leader of all goths, has threatened to “harvest the soul” of Ed Miliband following the Labour leader's call for a Manson tax.
Under the proposal, Manson’s wealth would be taxed at a rate of 66.6% to help heal the moribund economy.
A furious Manson said Miliband had “opened the gates of hell” before folding his arms and sulking in a corner.
He called on all goths to intensify their campaign against society by spending longer than usual locked away in the darkness of their bedrooms and being stroppier to their loving parents.
Miliband, said by friends to be more of a Slipknot fan, was not immediately available for comment.
A source close to David's brother said: "He is shitting bricks. The goths at school used to bully Ed and would only let him go if he sacrificed a small animal in a Satanic ritual. I think this is Ed's revenge."
