Re: Well, duh ..

taxation has reached frankly ridiculous levels compared to abroad.

*COUGH* COUGH*

Actually... I think you'll find that's not /entirely/ true.

This list has (frmo a quick copy & paste & grep & wc ) 84 countries with higher basic rates than the UK. In the UK you don;'t pay a penny below £11k, above that it's 20%. In the land of free enterprise and entrepreneurship it's 35%.
