The Bogeyman is a common allusion to a mythical creature in many cultures used by adults or older children to frighten bad children into good behaviour.
The mansion tax is a way of telling people that they need to redistribute their wealth as they have to much; either through luck or greed, if you own a £2 million house you can afford it – there are people who don’t have anywhere to live.
They are both ways of telling those who know no better that there practices should change. The rich should be careful when they close there eyes as the Bogeyman WILL get them. Right is right because it is right not because Politicians/law/religion/ parents/school/social media/friends* say it is!

In the desolate depths of a perilous placethe bogeyman lurks, with a snarl on his face.Never dare, never dare to approach his dark lairfor he’s waiting . . . just waiting . . . to get you.He skulks in the shadows, relentless and wildin his search for a tender, delectable child.With his steely sharp claws and his slavering jawsoh he’s waiting . . . just waiting . . . to get you.Many have entered his dreary domainbut not even one has been heard from again.They no doubt made a feast for the butchering beastand he’s waiting . . . just waiting . . . to get you.In that sulphurous, sunless and sinister placehe’ll crumple your bones in his bogey embrace.Never never go near if you hold your life dear,for oh! . . . what he’ll do . . . when he gets you!
