All in favour of lowering VAT,
though normal prices will just be raised to compensate, but why the extra tax on the high-earners? I mean they're the ones using the very least government funds and paying the very most.
And yes, they earn more than you, communism's great, blah de blah. But the fact is that the Government is taking money from the public to pay for their own overreaching projects and stupidity.
Why not tax the low earners more? There's more of them, so a smaller % tax could be levvied, and you'd encourage people to earn more and be proud of it, not have their accountants shove their extra earnings offshore. Hit £20k and your income rises hugely due to less "low earner tax" is surely a better incentive to work hard and get a better job than "Work really hard, then we'll take your money after our next fuckup".
Alternatively just tax everybody the same. Stop picking on broad groups of the public.
